1999 Perennial Plant of the Year 18-24" tall x 24" wide (seed propagated). "Goldsturm" continues to increase in popularity because gardeners find it irresistible when they see a big plant in flower. This is a long-blooming cultivar, with lots of golden-orange black-eyed daisies forming a tidy dome of color for many weeks in late summer. Most Rudbeckias are biennial but "Goldsturm" is a true perennial variety, getting bigger and better each year.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Rudbeckia fulgida Goldsturm:

    I planted this in my flower bed and didn't think it would grow much the first year. I was wrong! It grew and I had lots of blooms. The goldfinches loved it!

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
