Rudbeckia

Rudbeckia or coneflowers are flowering plants that are part of the Asteraceae family. Their black centred daisy like flowers also give rise to the alternative name Black Eyed Susan. They are native to North America.

What is a Rudebeckia?

Rudbeckia are hardy perennial plants that have daisy like flowers carried above the foliage on tall stems. The plants in flower can be from 0.5m to over 2m tall. Flower colours range from yellow through gold and amber to reds and bronzy browns. Rudbeckia have a long flowering season from mid-summer through to autumn and are very attractive to bees and other pollinators

Where to plant Rudbeckia?

Rudbeckia like full sun or partial shade and a moist but well drained soil. Smaller forms make colourful patio pot plants. Rudbeckia in the garden border can help to create a cottage garden, prairie or wildflower meadow look.

How to care for a Rudbeckia?

Rudbeckia are easy to look after. Water young and pot grown plants in dry spells. Deadheading spent flowers will prolong the flowering season . Tidy up dead or damaged foliage and flower stalks in early spring and apply mulch to promote fresh new growth.
