Rudbeckia laciniata 'Goldquelle'
Double yellow pom-pom flowers, attractively cut foliage is a difference from other coneflowers. Of course, having no cone, it hardly qualifies as a coneflower any more - but I'm not complaining.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|Michelle||Jul 13, 2005||Hi,
I have this growing along my side fence in part shade (I find it gets a little floppy for me in full sun). It gets up to about 7 ft tall in places. Super hardy, can be invasive (via underground tubers). Makes fantastic cut flower bouquets!|
|joy||Aug 04, 2005||I absolutely adore this Goldquelle - so cheery, profuse with blooms, 7' tall, and once it starts it just keeps on blooming! The cut flowers last a week,what's not to love!|
|joy||Aug 04, 2005||WAIT ! Just found out that my variety is the Rudbeckia lacinate "Golden Glow" - even more spectacular than Goldquelle. "Loads of fluffy double" poms. It's fantastic! ! ! |
|diana||Sep 06, 2006||Hi, For several years I have been looking for a plant I grew up with. As close as I can tell it sort of resembles this goldquelle but it is so hard to tell from the pix. Do you have more pix or can you tell me where to find it? The one I knew was growing in full western sun in So. Oregon. Please & thank you for what you can tell me.|
No additional photos for now - good luck finding the plant you remember
|Ranue Maharaj||Jun 03, 2009||I am interested in having this plant (rudbeckia, goldquelle). As I live in the tropics, I think that it would be spectacular in my garden. However, I can only order seeds for importation. Are there any seeds available for this variety of rudbeckia? If so, please let me know where I can purchase them. Thanks a lot,
I don't know if 'Goldquelle' can be grown from seed; there certainly haven't been volunteer seedlings in our garden.
|Ana Estela||Nov 29, 2009||Hi, I write from San Antonio de Areco, Argentina. I have this Rudbeckia growing at full sun and I agree with Michelle on it gets a little floppy. It is flowering now and it will continue flowering during all the summer. I couldn't find seeds, no fruits. It must be triploid or an interespecific hybrid. It's a beatiful plant with beautiful flowers and leaves.|
|Marjorie and Jack Owen||Aug 20, 2010||A friend identified this plant for us. We have some that have been growing at our home for many years. Jack is 81, and says they were his grandmother's flowers. They are gorgeous, double blooms. They grew about seven feet tall this year. They must be staked and tied as the rain saturates the blooms and the stalks will fall if not tied. |

I have been growing this for years and could never identify it but just saw it in one of my favorite catalogues, Select Seeds (fragrant heirlooms). From what I was told it was a 'perennial sunflower,' given to me 15 years ago (and sitting in the pot for 2). I planted one plant in full sun, and now the patch is about 10x8 feet. My dog chews a "fort" in the center of them every summer. I find, too, that they flop in the rain. In years when I have not tied them up, I just go out and shake the rain off of them, and they stand back up. I see also that there are single petaled ones, but i think the pompons are the best. I live in Michigan, just outside of Detroit. I hear early spring leaves are edible as greens. Have you tried them? Thanks. Forward to Spring...|
