Rudbeckia hirta Cappuccino Seeds

Rudbeckia Cappuccino is one of my favourite plants. With huge conker coloured blooms and a long flowering period these plants are fabulously glamorous. It is easy to grow from seed, makes a lovely cut flower and is perfect for pollinating insects. Grow these in your garden and I am sure that you will love them just as much as I do!
