Gloriosa Daisy Wildflower Seed

Gloriosa Daisy (Rudbeckia Hirta) - A superb performer for the perennial flower border, Rudbeckia Gloriosa Daisy, is easily propagated from Rudbeckia Hirta seeds, and it offers a rewarding long bloom season with a glorious display of color! Gloriosa Daisy blooms vary from solid gold, bicolors, and doubles. The Gloriosa Daisy plant, a relative of Black-eyed Susan, typically has larger blooms with brown centers and a mahogany red color shooting into yellow outer petals. This flower will grow in most soil types that are well-drained and in sunny settings. This daisy makes a good cut flower, and the more you cut, the more blooms are produced!

Growing Gloriosa Daisy seed is simple and very rewarding! Sow Gloriosa Daisy seeds outdoors any time in the late fall or as early in the spring as the ground can be cultivated. Prepare soil by loosening the top 1 - 2 inches and removing any weeds. Sow the Rudbeckia Hirta seeds into the loosened soil and rake in. Walk over the area to gently press the wildflower seeds into the soil. Keep the Gloriosa flower seeds moist until germination. The Gloriosa plants transplant well and should be spaced 12 - 18 inches apart. The Gloriosa plants form a clump that will reach 12 inches in width. Deadheading prolongs the bloom season, but Gloriosa Daisies will re-seed themselves readily if you leave a few blooms to go to seed. Watch for Gloriosa Daisy seedlings in subsequent years. Rudbeckia Hirta flowers will not bloom much the first year the wildflower seeds are sown. Subsequent years will bring many more blooms.
