Rudbeckia 'Aries'

Plant details

Rudbeckia 'Aries' produces magnificent bright yellow flowers with a large dark central zone, between August and October. It's ideal for creating a splash of late-summer colour in ornamental borders and works well in prairie-style schemes with ornamental grasses. It's popular with late-flying pollinators and makes an excellent cut flower.

For best results grow Rudbeckia 'Aries' in bold drifts in moist but well-drained soil in full sun. Divide congested clumps from autumn to spring.

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
