Sven Magnussen is more than proud of Rudbeckia ‘Sunbeckia Maya’ who made it throw the winter. A plant from Hartwig Bull’s production, which was in their garden flowering from July till mid-October.
The above picture was from 01st October and shows a pretty nice flowering plant. The total flowering time was about 12 weeks. This ‘Sunbeckia Maya’ made it through the winter.
There was no change in the planter or substrate. In the beginning, Sven Magnussen has been afraid that the root system will not make it. But with regular fertilizer with each watering (180ppm N) the plant was:
- about high
- already in the bud stage, short before flowering
Rudbeckia ‘Sunbeckia’ is truly a zone 7 plant when it comes to hardiness. Besides the enormous amount of flowers is a bit of hardiness and an extra selling point.
‘Sunbeckia Maya’ is one of the more compact types in the ‘Sunbeckia’ program. Below you see a picture of Hartwig Bull’s week 24 planting from last year.
Here you find the full assortment of Rudbeckia from Bull Plant Genetics.
