description for "Coneflowers: Rudbeckia hirta 'Cappuccino'"

Irresistible 'Cappuccino' black-eyed Susan received the prestigious Fleuroselect award in Europe for beauty, productivity and top garden performance. These vigorous perennials produce gorgeous big flower faces in their first season with an array of beautiful bicolors in shades of red and yellow, warm mahogany, rich auburn and golden yellow. Sturdy and sun-loving, 'Cappuccino' is both heat and drought tolerant. Butterflies adore the bright blossoms, and they make long-lasting, festive cut flowers. These sturdy tetraploid black-eyed Susans are easy to grow, naturalize well and require little maintenance other than removing faded flowers for longest bloom. Once established, they can handle a wide range of weather conditions and will bloom stronger each season. Plants send up long stems of 3 to 4 inch daisy-shaped blossoms in an array of warm colors and bicolors beginning at midsummer. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
