Plants prefer consistent moisture throughout the growing season. Established plants have some tolerance for drought. Good air circulation is appreciated. Deadhead spent flowers to encourage additional bloom.
Plants do not come true from seed (must be vegetatively propagated). Some nurseries sell seed-grown plants, however, as Goldsturm strain.
This award winner is not your typical Brown-eyed Susan. Gold tips accent the vibrant red-orange petals of this long-blooming prairie native. Bushy plants are well branched with lush, lobed leaves on sturdy stems tinted bronzy purple. 'Prairie Glow' self-sows readily, which is an advantage with this biennial.
