Rudbeckia, also known as Black-eyed Susan, are native plants that offer long-season blooms from summer to fall. Rudbeckias show particularly well in mass, providing bright blooms all season long. Adding these plants to native plant gardens or mixed landscape beds for a naturalized look. Rudbeckias grow well in average soil but the soil needs to be able to hold moisture.
One of the most popular varieties is ‘Goldsturm’, which has a mature size of about 24 inches tall, and a similar width. These grow very well in sunny spaces; if the clump gets too large for your space, just divide it and give plant starts away to friends!
