Rudbeckia fulgida var. fulgida - Black-eyed Susan - great garden plant!
Rudbeckia fulgida var. fulgida is a low maintenance and resilient wildflower with shiny deep green foliage. Striking summer and autumn flowers are beloved for their golden orange rays and chocolate brown cones. Butterflies flock to the blooms and songbirds relish the seeds in sunny sites with average soil.
Flower heads are borne in profusion almost covering the foliage. Each daisy-like head averages 2” across with golden-yellow rays that encircle a robust dark brown cone loaded with disc florets.
Flowering is among the latest of the black-eyed Susans continuing for almost 3 months from late summer until autumn. Dense chocolate colored seed heads form and remain into early winter. Resistant to Septoria leaf spot that afflicts Rudbeckia Goldsturm.
Plants grow 2-2.5’ tall with 1-2’ spread.
