Rudbeckia hirta 'Cherokee Sunset' (Garden Ready)

  • Enjoy the hot colours of rudbeckia, even when it's cool in your garden!
  • The fast-track to a hassle-free garden - just plant, water and enjoy!
  • Quality plants delivered to your door, hardened off and ready to plant out
  • Fully-grown, super-robust, healthy plants
Our garden ready plants are selected for garden performance, straight from the nursery. We send them to you 'green' ahead of flowering (but please note some varieties may show a few blooms), which means plants will establish quickly and all their energy goes into producing better roots, so they produce more flowers throughout the season.

As a result of over 10 years breeding and selection by T&Ms flower breeders, Rudbeckia Cherokee Sunset® was born. Never before has there been such a spectacular range of colours of fully double to semi-double Rudbeckia, with large 3-4in blooms. Shades of golden yellow, orange, bronze and mahogany make up this stunning blend that resembles the attractive colour spectrum of an Indian Sunset. Vigorous, free branching plants, with strong stems, which flower over a long period from mid summer to early autumn. Cherokee Sunset® is outstanding for adding height, colour and interest to beds, borders and large containers. Also makes an impressive cut flower. T&M are proud to be the first UK packet seed company to have an All American Selection Winning variety from its own breeding programme. This prestigious award is presented to varieties that have outstanding garden performance, quality blooms, a unique colour range and that show a significant improvement over existing varieties of the species.

Delphinium 'New Millennium Dwarf Mixed'

We source our delphinium stocks from the best breeder in the world to guarantee top performance from our plants in your garden. The towering flower spires that make delphiniums a must-have garden perennial, can require sturdy staking to prevent them flopping under wind and rain. We're looking to change that with Delphinium 'New Millennium Juniors Mixed'. The sturdy upright stems don't need any staking or support, but give the same cottage garden feel as traditional varieties. From the world famous breeding of Terry Dowdeswell in New Zealand, these shorter, sturdier plants have been bred to perfection, with clear colours, evenly spaced florets, long flowering and high disease resistance. Height: 75cm (30"). Spread: 60cm (24").
