After growing Cherry Brandy, you'll never look at Rudbeckia the same way again! This powerhouse of a plant is just 2 feet tall, but sends up dozens upon dozens of giant daisies over a long season, bringing butterflies and bees to pay their respects all summer long. The long-lasting blooms combine rich shades of red and maroon with that trademark big black eye, so you can imagine how terrific they look in the vase (or just the cone, dried as an Everlasting!). In autumn, hungry songbirds replace the butterflies and bees, feasting on the seeds. Don't worry, though -- there are plenty in every bloom, so Cherry Brandy will self-sow magnificently in your sunny garden!

These flowers reach 3 to 4 inches wide, with petals that shade from zingy cherry-red to deep maroon at the base. Slightly upturned, they are eye-catching even from down the street, so you can imagine what a fully-blooming plant or grouping looks like! Held on very strong stems (hey, they have to support those heavy birds in autumn!), the flowers soak up the sun, even in poor dry soils. Expect them to bloom from early summer well into fall in most climates!

Cherry Brandy holds the distinction of being the first-ever red-flowered Rudbeckia available in seed form, and it will come true from its own seed scattered in your garden, too. That's good, because ALL of your gardening friends are going to want this plant! Deadhead the blooms as soon as they begin to pass, and a new flush will arise. Just remember to keep the last flowers on the plant until they dry out completely, so the birds will be fed and the seeds will fall! Cherry Brandy stands up to heat, humidity, drought, pests, and diseases effortlessly, making it wonderfully low maintenance in the garden!

Cherry Brandy has already won the Fleuroselect Novelty Award in Europe and the Green Thumb Award here in the States. Its combination of a compact habit, large blooms, and completely unique combination of colors wins hearts wherever it goes. And as a biennial (half-hardy annual), it would be short-lived if it didn't reseed itself so generously! Here's a plant that truly has everything a flower-loving gardener desires! North of its hardiness range, grow it as an annual.

The only slow thing about Cherry Brandy is the growth of its seedlings -- they take their time, so sow the seeds in early- to mid-winter in your Bio-Dome or seed flats. (We recommend the Whopper Bio-Dome because the larger bio-sponges will enable your seedlings to grow an extensive root system before transplanting, but the original or jumbo models work fine too.) Alternating temperatures of 68 and 86 degrees F work best, so if you can move it from a chilly to a warm room, or turn off its heat mat every night, that will work fine. The seeds sprout promptly -- 5 to 10 days should do it -- and then very slowly grow. When they have acquired 2 sets of true leaves, they can be transplanted, but make sure all danger of frost is past. From sowing to transplanting typically takes 4 months. Of course, you can also sow the seeds outdoors anytime from spring through late summer, but we recommend starting them indoors to better control the temperature.

If you love Rudbeckia as much as we do, pair Cherry Brandy with another newcomer to the family--the stunning Denver Daisy! Or, if you like a nice mix of singles and doubles, add Cappuccino to the blend! But whatever you do, DO grow Cherry Brandy! It's simply too spectacular to do without! Zones 5-8. Pkt is 25 seeds.

Superior Germination Through Superior Science

Park's Superior Seeds Park Seed's humidity- and temperature-controlled seed storage vault Park Seed offers some of the highest-quality vegetable and flower seeds available in the industry, and there are a number of reasons for this.

First of all, we have humidity- and temperature-controlled storage, and we never treat any of our seeds with chemicals or pesticides. Nor do we ever sell GMO's (genetically modified seeds), so you always know the products you're buying from us are natural as well as safe for you and the environment.

Superior Standards - University Inspected

Testing seeds against minimum germination standards To make sure we are providing the best seed product possible and that our customers will get the highest number of seedlings from every packet, we conduct our own germination testing and have quality-control measures in every stage of our seed-handling operation. We hold ourselves to standards that are at or above federal and state standards, including testing specific crops more frequently than recommended by federal guidelines. And in order to maintain our organic certification, we welcome Clemson University to inspect us annually to make sure our organic seeds, which are stored and processed separately, are being handled properly.

Hand Packed By Experienced Technicians

Park Seed has been handling and packing vegetable and flower seeds for 145 years, a history that has given us a great understanding of how each variety should be cared for and maintained throughout every step of theprocess, from collection to shipping.

When packing our seeds, the majority are actually done by hand (with extreme care!), and we often over-pack them, so you're receiving more than the stated quantity.

The Park Seed Gold Standard

Park Seed's exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil seed packets And many of our seeds are packed in our exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil packets, which are lined to keep moisture out, so the seeds stay fresher for longer. We carefully pack very tiny or fragile seeds in crush-proof vials to ensure safe delivery to your home. Some of the small seeds are also offered as "pellets" (have a clay coating) to make sowing and growing easier.

Our on-staff horticulturists are ready and available to share their expertise to help you with the success of these seeds, so you can grow a beautiful and productive garden!
