Availability: In Stock
A must-have, first-year-blooming perennial, 'Cherokee Sunset' boasts colors unusual in the world of rudbeckias. Over 10-years of breeding and selection resulted in toasty colors of burnt orange, yellow, gold, warm red, and bronze, all found on each 3"-5" double or semi-double bloom. Once they start blooming in early summer, the sunset show continues until frost, to the delight of bees and butterflies; left standing in the fall, the seed cones attract birds. Sturdy stems are a plus for cut-flower arrangements. An All-America Selections award winner. Perennial in USDA zones 9–10. Deer resistant.
