Black Eyed Susan ‘Indian Summer’ 
Rudbeckia hirta 


Gloriosa Daisy hybrids are short-lived perennials, sometimes treated as annuals. Often these will survive a few winters, or at least self seed. This strain produces very large golden-orange black-eyed daisy flowers for months on end, on a bushy, upright plant. 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. An All America Society award winner.

Indian Summer’ makes a wonderful addition to summer bouquets.
