Plant details

Rudbeckia 'Rustic Dwarfs Mixed' contains a beautiful mixture of yellow, bronze and mahogany rudbeckias, which stand up well to wet weather. It's perfect for growing in a mixed herbaceous border, and also works well in prarie-style planting schemes. Like all coneflowers, Rudbeckia 'Rustic Dwarfs Mixed' thrives in a sheltered, sunny spot.

I love Rudbeckia's and have grown some from seed this year. I was hoping to grow them as perennials but i'm not sure now as the article above says to grow them as half hardy annuals, any advice on this please?
