Black Eyed Susan

 

Rudbeckia Goldsturm (Black Eyed Susan) blooms in mid- to late summer with an eye-catching display of golden-orange flowers.

Reliable and tough, Rudbeckia tolerates both drought and clay, and is otherwise easy to maintain.

Details

1999 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.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Rudbeckia fulgida Goldsturm:

    As soon as the plant arrived and was planted, Mother Nature threw everything in her arsenal at this plant. It survived. It bloomed.A great plant for our desert garden. We love the happy yellow flowers this Rudbeckia gave all summer and into fall.

      I planted this in my flower bed and didn't think it would grow much the first year. I was wrong! It grew and I had lots of blooms. The goldfinches loved it!

      Q & A

      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).
