Rudbeckia, 'Green Wizard'
(Rudbeckia occidentalis) “Petal-less” might be a tough selling point for a flower cultivar, but this unique rudbeckia shines in garden borders and as bouquet filler. In place of the more typical ray flowers, this elongated coneflower has a collar of upswept green petal-like sepals. Native to moist meadows and stream beds of the mountain west, this 3-4’ rudbeckia prefers ample moisture. The tiny flowers forming the cone were almost exclusively pollinated by beautiful metallic green sweat bees at our farm. A unique addition to any bouquet.
Perennial. Blooms the second year and thereafter. UO
