Easy to Care for Rudbeckia Goldstrum Plants
Rudbeckia Goldstrum is easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerates hot and humid summers and some drought. Tolerates light shade, but best in full sun. Deadhead to prolong bloom. Divide when clumps become overcrowded. Plants do not come true from seed (must be vegetatively propagated). This coneflower cultivar is an upright, rhizomatous, clump-forming perennial which typically grows 2-3' tall. Features large, daisy-like flowers (3-4" across) with deep yellow rays and dark brownish-black center disks. Flowers appear singly on stiff, branching stems in a prolific, long-lasting, mid-summer-to-fall bloom. Oblong to lanceolate, dark green foliage. Good fresh cut flower. Mass in bold drifts in the perennial border, cottage garden, prairie, meadow or naturalized area. Provides excellent bloom and color for late summer. Black Eyed Susans are one of the most popular perennials available today, having earned the prestigious Perennial Plant of the Year Award in 1999. A classic garden combination includes upright Sedum 'Autumn Joy' and Perovskia atriplicifolia. It is an excellent perennial for providing color in late summer and is especially showy in mass plantings.
