Gloriosa daisy is a North American species of black-eyed Susan. It is found on moist meadows and other insolated locations with free draining soil that does not get too dry. It is commonly classified as a short-lived perennial or even an annual that seeds itself reliably. So in spite of a single plant lifespan it remains in situ for a long time, be it the mother plant or new baby seedlings.

Cherokee Sunset s a gorgeous gloriosa daisy variety bringing a mix of rich and warm colours. From early July 60-70 cm tall stems bear extra large, 8-12 cm across flowers in deep golden yellow, amber orange, dark mahogany red, and even chocolate brown colour. They can be single, semi-double, and mostly fully double forming a shape like a dahlia or a dandelion. The leaves are large, ovate, mid green.

The variety was bred at Thompson & Morgan and won several awards, most significantly an All America Selections winner in the year of its introduction in 2002, which is an award given not only for its exceptional beauty but also reliability and garden performance.

Gloriosa daisy will NOT tolerate heavy clay or wet/boggy soil. It needs good drainage yet sufficient moisture during the growing season. Grow it in full sun only. Deadheading will prolong flowering time and encourage formation of new buds. It is suitable for mixed borders with perennials, or can be used as a flowering feature among low shrubs and conifers, and looks lovely when planted in a mass in a container on patios and balconies. Fully hardy to min. -30°C (USDA zone 5).
