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).

Plant Information
24-30" tall x 18-24" wide, this is at or near the top of every experts list of the best perennials of all. In fact, it won Perennial Plant of the Year in 1999. Developed in Germany, this is a hybrid of one of our native wildflowers, the Black-eyed Susan, and its one of the most useful perennials ever introduced.

As you may know, the common roadside Black-eyed Susan is named Rudbeckia hirta, and its a biennial. (We have the seed in our Wildflower Seed Section, and its a mainstay of wildflower mixtures. But its not dependably perennial.)

This is what prompted interest in the hardiest perennial species in the Rudbeckia group. (They look exactly alike) The tough native perennial Black Eyed Susan is R. fulgida, so this is the one a German hybridizer used to create the now-famous Goldsturm strain. (In German, Goldsturm means, literally, Gold Storm.)

Today, these tough, hardy, heavy-flowering plants light up our landscapes everywhere from backyard gardens to flower borders at gas stations and malls. This fantastic plant spreads slowly, is easy to divide when it grows large, and never fails with weeks and weeks of wonderful golden blooms. This is a classic perennial that every garden must have.
