I have a similar combo (but in reverse formation to Stourhead’s) planted out earlier this year using a smaller Rudbeckia and some asters I bought at our Waterperry visit. They’re not blooming yet! *drums fingers*
Well, it was quite late when we went to Waterperry, wasn’t it – end of Sep. So there’s still time : )
I think I’d prefer this without the rudbekia.
OK Margaret – leave it with me. I’ll ask them to remove the rudbeckia!
I think I’d like something a little less yellow against that rust-coloured wall. I agree the lavender coloured Michaelmas daisies might need a bit of a lift from a stronger colour, but it’s the golden yellow of the rudbekia that I don’t think works here.
