Plant details

Rudbeckias are at their best in autumn. Their large, daisy-like flowers reflect the tints of the changing trees with their rich shades of gold, orange and mahogany red. There are many different varieties, single and double, tall and dwarf. All possess a prominent cone-like centre to the flower, earning the alternative common name of Black-eyed Susan, shared with Thunbergia. They grow well in a sunny site with well-drained soil. Rudbeckia 'Aries' produces bright yellow flowers with a dark central zone.

I'm growing Rudbeckia Marmalade from seed for the first time. Having just read about them, I take it that I could plant them on outside now? They're about 3" now & 4-6 leaves on most plants.Any help on this please? Thank you
