Rudbeckia 'Little Henry' is a more compact version of 'Henry Eilers.' This one reaches 3-4 feet tall here, while 'Henry Eilers' gets much larger at about 6-7 feet tall. 'Little Henry' is covered with yellow, quilled flowers from July to September here. It is a very reliable plant. I have seen them mowed down to the ground and still come back to flower the same year. This is one of my favorite perennial plants. It looks great with Helianthus 'Happy Days' because they are a similar color and height with matching bloom times. For contrast, try pairing it with Salvia 'Black and Blue' as well. Every garden should have at least one Rudbeckia 'Little Henry.'
