Rudbeckia hirta, 'Marmalade'Settler Hives
Are you day dreaming of the English countryside but can’t leave your day job? Grow your own meadow- like orange flowers to pick for inside vases (to gaze at while you enjoy your marmalade toast). They are best described as warm orange-yellow petals with a huge dark cone sized centre. They bloom all through Summer and Autumn and if you trim the bush back to 1/3 its original size after flowering, you can expect them to bring the sunshine again the following year! As endearing and warm as Paddington Bear.
