RUDBECKIA hirta 'Toto Rustic'( TOTO SERIES)
Common Black-eyed Susan, Toto Rustic Black-eyed Susan
Toto® Rustic is a short-statured, floriferous black-eyed Susan grown for its rustic two-tone flowers. This clump-forming, short-lived perennial originates from North America. All summer, it bears many large daisies with petals that are chocolate-burgundy at the base and golden yellow at the tips. These appear on short, stout stems lined with hairy dark green leaves. Each plant becomes covered with flowers, which are manna to bees and butterflies.
Common black-eyed Susan grows best in full sun and well drained, average soil. It is prone to root rot and powdery mildew, so it's best to provide it with good air flow and avoid over watering. Plants are easily grown from seed and will self-sow if given the opportunity.
The dwarf Toto® Rustic is ideal for hot, sunny containers and mixed borders. Remove spent flowers regularly to extend flowering.
