One of the most popular perennials available today, having earned the prestigious Perennial Plant of the Year Award in 1999. Plants have a long season of bloom and a sturdy, upright habit. The gold daisy-like flowers have a distinct dark brown central cone and are held on branching stems. Avoid deadheading to provide winter interest since the black seed heads remain attractive throughout the colder months and the seeds provide a source of food for our small feathered friends.

Maintenance Notes: Rudbeckias like full sun, but they also will do well in partial shade. Plant them in well-drained, not overly rich soil. Remove spent flowers in order to stimulate continuous bloom. Plants will self-seed. If this is not desired, cut the plants back in fall. Rudbeckias are very easy to divide in the spring. They also make great cut flowers.
