A beautiful dark red rudbeckia, this provides a lovely contrast with other plants. However the stems were a bit short for a successful cut flower.

As above - beautifully packaged and so everything arrived in good condition which meant that when planted they were in tip top condition. The flowers themselves have been wonderful and everything promised in the catalogue and just what we hoped for

Lovely plants, still flowering, no problems at all. Have been admired by friends

Lovely but more brown than crimson

Reviewed 20th August 2016 by Euan

These are very beautiful but the colour is really a brownish red rather than crimson, so not ideal pairing with truly crimson or pink flowers. So more the colour of cherry brandy than cherries.
