Description

With luxurious blooms in possibly the most silky and opulent shade of red possible, Rudbeckia hirta 'Cherry Brandy' is a total looker worth its space in any planting scheme. Whatever your style, it’s hard to say no to such a dreamy flower with amazingly adaptable blooms. It’s dark cherry hue and black centre are what gives this twilight character the subtlety to combine well with virtually anything, warming up the tone in your garden a notch or two without an ounce of brash!

Syrupy-red petals are a real late-summer treat for the eyes. Though these Rudbeckia hirta 'Cherry Brandy' start to bloom in mid-summer, they really get into the swing of things as autumn approaches. These hardy perennials are bee-friendly, plus they’re strong, upright and fully hardy, forming established clumps with multiple stems over time. Let them loose in your borders and enjoy an effortless show that just keep on getting better every year!

Useful information

    • Soak your Rudbeckia 'Cherry Brandy' 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.
