    Overview

    Goldquelle Coneflower (Rudbeckia laciniata ‘Goldquelle’) is an old-fashioned, tall but compact perennial, also known as Gold Drops. With its double blossoms, late bloom time and attractive divided leaves, it deserves more attention.

    Some people confuse this with the older variety “Golden Glow’, which is taller, more invasive, floppier, and more attractive to aphids. The flower heads of this double-flowered perennial are packed with lemon-yellow petals and grow on stems 3 feet high.

    Planting Tips

    The deeply cut green leaves make an effective background. Goldquelle Coneflower makes a fine addition to the summer border and will continue flowering until the middle of the fall. Rudbeckia and grasses make a happy combination in a larger border. It prefers a sunny spot in rich, moist soil, although it will also grow with moderate moisture. The long-staked flowers are ideal for cutting. The plant tolerates alkalines soils.
