Rudbeckia MiniBeckia Flame

“This new Rudbeckia variety, which is colored like flames, is standing out at trials”

A new introduction from GardenChoice made an appearance at the Ohio State University trial gardens, namely the new Rudbeckia MiniBeckia Flame. From the breeding of Rick Grazzini of Garden Genetics, this new Rudbeckia is self-branching with a compact habit, and will show continuous bloom for 8+ weeks.

According to Melanie Byrne, Plant Products Manager at Eason Horticultural Resources, “this is a zone 5b Rudbeckia with a densely branched, mounded habit. It has a 4-6” semi double flower and will bloom continuously until a hard frost. The plant matures to about 18-22” tall and wide and will often overwinter and return for a second or even a third season.”

At an earlier garden trials at the University of Georgia, the Rudbeckia MiniBeckia Flame caught the eye of Dr. Allan Armitage, who is professor of horticulture at the University. He posted a video in which he shares his admiration for the plant, and that he thinks it has a bright future ahead as a popular garden flower. According to Dr. Armitage, visitors of the trials were able to mark their favorite plants with flags, and this new Rudbeckia variety quickly had a collection of flags surrounding it, marking its popularity. Dr. Armitage's video can be seen below:
