Rudbeckia-Black-eyed Susan, Gloriosa Daisy

Depending on the variety generally Black-eyed Susan’s can be propagated either in the spring or fall by dividing the rhizomous clumps and can grow as tall a 3' so they belong in the back of the garden bed. In some instances the varieties can be either double, annual, biennial, or perennial and attract butterflies. The basic Rubeckia is yellow but there are orange, bronze, red, russet and mahogany blooming varieties as well. They prefer full sun in an average well draining composted soil and bloom through late summer and are relatively low maintenance and grow naturally in fields throughout the country except in the Southwest. An easy plant for the novice gardener.
