  • Care
  • Rudbeckia hirta 'Cherry Brandy' is an easy perennial that can remain in the same spot for years. Make sure the soil around the roots does not dry out. Soil that is too wet is not well tolerated, especially in winter. Before winter, the stems above ground will die off. In winter, cover the plants with a layer of fallen leaves. Cut off all leaves in spring. Soon, new shoots will start to appear above ground.
