Quick Overview:

This award winner is not your typical Brown-eyed Susan. Gold tips accent the vibrant red-orange petals of this long-blooming prairie native. Bushy plants are well branched with lush, lobed leaves on sturdy stems tinted bronzy purple. ‘Prairie Glow’ self-sows readily, which is an advantage with this biennial.

Description

Prefers sandy or loamy, moist soils, but is drought resistant. Spreads slowly by rhizomes. Deadhead to prolong blooming season. Propagate by seed, cuttings and division. Cut back to the ground after first frost and mulch to protect roots for the winter. Outstanding in mass plantings, as a border perennial, or in rock or low maintenance gardens.
