I love the big splash of color that Rudbeckia 'Goldsturm' displays in the late summer. So last year when I was introduced to the earlier blooming 'Early Bird Gold' I was excited to know that I could enjoy the bright gold color most of the season.

Color Keeps Coming Review by Alyssa J | Zone: 7
I love my Early Bird Gold! I love Rudbeckias and this variety lets me enjoy the blooms much earlier than my Goldstrums. I have planted them near each other so the color just keeps coming. (Posted on 9/20/2009)
