Rudbeckia subtomentosa 'Little Henry'
Common Name: Sweet Coneflower Family: Asteraceae (The Aster Family)

Rudbeckia subtomentosa 'Little Henry'
Zoom In Photo:

'Little Henry' displays the same charming blooms of 'Henry Eilers', but it is one third shorter topping off at three feet tall! Still good for cut flowers, but now fits well into the average landscape. This narrow, upright grower makes a great specimen in the border. The very appealing quilled, gold flowers bloom summer until frost. 'Little Henry' is one third shorter, blooms two weeks earlier, and doesn't fall open in the garden like 'Henry Eilers'.
