Rudbeckia fulgida Goldsturm
Black Eyed Susan
Details1999 Perennial Plant of the Year 18-24" tall x 24" wide (seed propagated). Rudbeckia fulgida "Goldsturm" (Black Eyed Susan) continues to increase in popularity because gardeners find it irresistible when they see a big plant in flower. This is a long-blooming cultivar, with lots of golden-orange black-eyed daisies forming a tidy dome of color for many weeks in late summer. Most Rudbeckias are biennial but "Goldsturm" is a true perennial variety, getting bigger and better each year. Everblooming. No deadheading needed but flowers can be harvested for reblooming. Cut back in late fall or wait until mid-spring.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
