Rudbeckia subtomentosa 'Little Henry' (Sweet coneflower)

Rudbeckia subtomentosa 'Little Henry' PP23590, EU36960

Sweet coneflower or sweet black-eyed Susan

A shorter version of the popular 'Henry Eilers'
Delightful quilled yellow petals
Perfect for smaller landscapes
Introduced by Terra Nova Nurseries

The most darling little selection of native sweet coneflower you'll ever see! This is a third shorter than 'Henry Eilers'; the height has great appeal, but it is the unique petals that draw the most attention. Surrounding the traditional brown-eyed Susan cones are narrow quills that jet out all around it. A wonderfully compact, upright and vigorous introduction from Terra Nova.
