Reviewed 9th August 2016 by victoria farrow

The collection of Rudbeckia I planted in the spring are now in flower in my garden and are the most exquisite jewels. The flower petals are like crushed velvet with a little circle of golden embroidery-like dots around the darker cone of the cappuccino. The cherry brandy is a beautiful dark red velvet and just as lovely.
My new favourite flowers :)
