Rudbeckia hirta 'Toto Lemon' (Gloriosa Daisy)
Gloriosa Daisy hybrids are short-lived perennials, sometimes treated as annuals. Often these will survive a few winters, or at least self seed. This compact strain produces large brown-eyed daisy flowers for months on end. Petals are a cheery bright lemon-yellow shade. An outstanding cut flower. Removing faded blossoms regularly will greatly increase the flowering time. Seed heads have good winter interest, and can be used in dried arrangements. Fairly drought tolerant, once established. Wonderful in mixed containers.
