Sunbeckia & SunMagic CSU Flower Trial Results 2023
“After 2021 and 2022, we got some good results back from CSU on our Rudbeckia ‘Sunbeckia.’ Find below the comments from the CSU 2023 “Best of Annuals”!” the company’s team explains.

Best Rudbeckia container – Sunbeckia® Juliana from Bull Plant Genetics
Big, clean yellow flowers with a light green eye covered the plants. The size, color, and large number of blooms made this a showstopper that evaluators loved. It was also noted for its sturdy growth habit, so it resisted flopping open.

Best Rudbeckia, ground – Sunbeckia® Luna from Bull Plant Genetics
Large blooms were attractive due to their sheer size but it was also a favorite due to the interesting colors of yellow and dark red. Flowers were also noted to having a progression of color as it matured that was also very attractive and unique. Plants were very healthy, and flowering was prolific.

In 2021 the Echinacea’ SunMagic Vintage’ series from Bull Plant Genetics was rated as a superior 1st year flowering Echinacea. Also, the overwinter trial demonstrated high perennial performance.

Superior 1st Year Flowering – Echinacea SunMagic Vintage® series from Bull Plant Genetics
The SunMagic Vintage series is known for its compact plant size and uniform growth habit. Plants filled in fast the first year while blooms were noted for having lots of petals and for holding their color a long time, although it was even noted that it had attractive mottling on the flowers as they faded. SunMagic Vintage Ruby was particularly appealing with a unique fluorescent color.
