CSU Trial Garden 2021 announces ‘Ophelia’ to the “Best of Show”

Best of Show – Rudbeckia Sunbeckia Ophelia from Flamingo Holland/Bull

Gigantic yellow flowers glow in the sun and attracted attention from across the garden. The huge flowers create a near solid canopy of yellow color that creates enormous flower power. Foliage that is visible is very attractive and clean. Plants require no pinching and matures at a nice medium height. The long lasting flowers keep a fresh look and stay low maintenance by “burying its dead”. Performance was excellent both in ground and containers.
