Medal Of Excellence Nominee: Rudbeckia 'Tiger Eye Gold'
July 8, 2008
Goldsmith Seeds has introduced the world's first F1 hybrid rudbeckia, 'TigerEye Gold.'
A familiar variety in the garden, the American native rudbeckia thrives in a wide range of conditions, north to south, coast to coast.
'TigerEye Gold' offers growers advantages over traditional open-pollinated rudbeckia varieties, including rapid and uniform plug development, excellent and uniform establishment following transplant, great pot-fill resulting from superior branching, fine-tuned PGR responsiveness, uniform bud development and flowering. This bench-run uniformity translates into a high-value 4- to 6-inch product.
Retailers benefit from 'TigerEye Gold's' compact habit and durable, eye-catching flowers. Customers won't be able to resist!
Home gardeners and landscapers will love the incredible display of long-lasting, semi-double golden blooms. These 18- to 24-inch plants make a strong statement over a wide range of conditions, weathering heat and humidity while offering reduced sensitivity to powdery mildew and requiring minimal care.
