Hi all

I'm a bit confused........ I bought some Rudbeckia Toto Gold a while ago, and want to propagate them. Problem is, I've read conflicting things on the net: some say the plant is an annual, some say half-hardy perrenial. 

Can someone pleeeeeeeeease tell me exactly what I should be doing lol

Hi there,

I did a bit of a search on the net myself and found Toto Gold described as a short lived perennial that will survive most winters.

So, basically if i were you i would be saving some seed from the plant (if it has flowered) as an insurance policy.

I love all Rudbeckias ( even if they all tend to be yellow) i even have the weird ( to some people) variety green wizard that doesnt have any petals just the green sepals and the black cone "bit".

if you like the Toto Gold and want a Rudbeckia that is reliable and that you can divide after a few years I would go for the Goldstrum variety.

Hope this helps
