The pale yellow tipped, golden flowers with a pale green center, combined with excellent garden performance, are no doubt what won an All America Selections award for Prairie Sun. The large showy 6 to 8" flowers on hearty plants have consistent exceptional outdoor performance. For garden center sales, it is best grown in 6" pots or larger. Cut flower growers also turn to this variety to use in mixed bouquets and for wholesale sales to local florists. A truly terrific variety, Prairie Sun continues to be one of the most popular rudbeckias in the R. hirta species. This beauty should be treated as an annual in most parts of the country.
