Rudbeckia maxima 'Golda Emanis'

Large Coneflower

Plant Type:


Rudbeckia maxima 'Golda Emanis' - A bold clump of bright yellow-green paddle-shaped leaves in spring mature light chartreuse with a bare glaucous patina. In summer that cool color appears as fresh and clean as spring's young newly emergent foliage when pitted against purples and dark greens. Individual leaves are erect, the clump vase-shaped. The gestalt forms a very nice attention drawing mound standing 12 or more inches tall. In summer stems arise to 7 feet and host large golden composites. Secondary flowering stems arise from leaf axils on each main stem. The greenish central disc gradually like yeasty dough rises up like while maturing brown. Each flower resembles a traditional Mexican hat. They are fascinating and showy. Selected from a stand of R. maxima in Texas Greg Grant has named this treasure for his great aunt. Let the flowering stalks stand in place after the flowers have passed - the gold finches will thank you. And for further seasonal affect the foliage may be evergreen or darned close to it down south. This clumping perennial is so dense as to snuff out the possibility of weedy interlopers. Full sun in average to fertile draining soil. Established potted Large Coneflower from division.


5-7 ft
