PLANT OF THE WEEK

RUDBECKIA FULGIDA VAR DEAMII

Ruislip & Eastcote & Northwood Gazette - - Hot House -

This is an easy-to-grow peren­nial that brings lots of sun­shine to your gar­den with tonnes of black-eyed yel­low daisies.

The cone­flower, also some­times known as black-eyed Su­san, likes to grow in sun­shine or par­tial shade and prefers well-drained, moist, quite fer­tile soil but re­ally it’s not fussy and very low main­te­nance.

It will pro­vide pollen for but­ter­flies too.

Prop­a­ga­tion is easy – you can ei­ther di­vide it in spring or grow it from seed.
