RE: Rudbeckia and Echinacea

Oh goodie - 2 of my favorites. I am wintersowing several varieties of rudbeckias this year as well as some echinacea. I'd love to see some bloom first year. Wishful thinking I know. The Cherry Brandy is listed as an annual - wouldn't that mean that it would bloom first year?
Again, lovin the pics! Nik

RE: Rudbeckia and Echinacea

Many rudbeckias do bloom the first year and if Cherry Brandy is an annual it had better have first year bloom. I think some places list it as a tender perennial. I also have some Cherry Brandy seeds to ws. Think I will mulch it really, really well to see if I can have it carry over the winter.

I think this rudbeckia had a small amount of bloom the first year, r. burpeii also bloomed the first year. Had r. burpeii in a pot as wasn't sure if it would be a perennial for me. I put the pot next to the house for the winter and it bloomed nicely again last summer.

The cherry brandy is also listed as half hardy annual. It had better bloom. Especially here in zone 7. I'm starting my seeds indoors just to make sure.
