Medal Of Excellence Nominee: Rudbeckia ‘Tiger Eye Gold’

Medal Of Excellence Nominee: Rudbeckia 'Tiger Eye Gold'

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. 

Cultural Information

Uniformity formerly unknown in rudbeckia
Excellent basal development
Excellent PGR response
