Useful information

    • Soak your Rudbeckia 'Cherokee Sunset' roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting.

    • Plant your "Cone flower" bare roots into temporary pots with a multipurpose compost in spring and grow-on in a sheltered spot outdoors.

    • Choose a pot which comfortably fits the bare roots. Some have a noticeable crown which should be just below the soil surface with any top growth exposed.

    • Plant out into borders or permanent containers in late spring or early summer once in full growth. Choose a position in sun or shade depending on the variety.
