Common Name: Black-Eyed Susan
Destined to become the new industry standard, this new introduction is a terrific improvement over ‘Goldsturm’.
While ‘Goldsturm’ can stand waist-high in bloom with tall, wispy flowering stems, ‘Little Goldstar’ is a much more compact, proportional plant. Standing just knee high, this plant forms a bushy, short clump of rich green foliage covered with a dome of closely spaced, starburst-shaped, 2-2½”, golden yellow blossoms held just above the foliage.
Very well-branched scapes carry loads of flowers from midsummer through early fall. Over 80 flowers have been counted on a single plant, making this selection more floriferous than 'Goldsturm'.
