It's time to show off your garden filled with American Meadows products!
But this one is unique. Growing only from 2 to 5 ft. (Some are much taller.) R. subtomentosa has beautiful golden flowers like the others, but the blooms also have a sweet scent of anise. That's why another common name for this Rudbeckia is "Sweet Coneflower." It's a wonderful plant for a wild garden collection.
