As the title really. I bought some as reduced plants from the garden centre last year, after they had finished flowering. They were put straight in the flower bed. Nothing to be seen yet. Should I be worried?
MIne have started in Surrey.
Mine haven't appeared yet, so i wouldn't worry yet. Sometimes the plants that flower later are the last to shoot
Depends, some Rudbeckias are annuals others perennials, the ones in my garden have remained green all winter due to the mild weather.
Mine have leaves on and are about 3" high, in north Yorkshire.
do you know what they were? as Mark says, some are annuals.
It wouldn't be very honest to sell annuals at the end of the season but there's a lot of ignorance about in GCs
Mine are all sprouting!!! Ssooorreeeeee ( I'm berkshire)
They were definitely perennials. Some very tall varieties and other middle sized ones. I guess I have nothing to lose if I just wait and see. That is the risk you take buying reject plants I guess and I have been a winner with everything else. We are in Wiltshire by the way and has been pretty mild here. Everything else seems to be getting going.
There's not much to see of my 'Goldsturm' and I haven't noticed laciniata yet. I'll have a look tomorrow to see what's there.
Mine started to shoot end Feb and are about 4cm now.
I did not look at all of them today but one of the bigger ones now has some shoots so there is hope yet!
