Buy Rudbeckia fulgida var. sullivantii 'Goldsturm' black-eyed susan : Large golden-yellow flowerheads

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, preferably heavy but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Large, golden-yellow, daisy-like flowers up to 12cm (5in) across with cone-shaped, blackish-brown centres from August to October. This award-winning black-eyed Susan looks great planted in bold drifts with other late summer-flowering perennials and ornamental grasses. Coping well in a sunny spot, it's ideal for the middle of a border that doesn't dry out over summer.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide congested colonies in autumn or spring. Support with ring stakes or brushwood well before the flowers appear.

Arrived quickly, very well packaged. Flourished after planting and flowered first year. Gorgeous long lasting flowers which really brightened up the garden. Hoping they come back as strong this year.

These look great in my mixed grass border and added a pop of colour in the first year but will spread and add waves of colour. Very pleased.

I was surprised and delighted how quickly these established in the garden of a new build house. I'd not expected such a great display in the first year but they provided great colour and fun.

A must for a summer garden

This plant is a must. Bright yellow flowers stay for a long time in August andvSeptember. Very good for flower arranging

Long lasting yellow flowers late summer

4

Great for late summer colour, good in mixed herbaceous plantings or mixed with grasses and prairie plants. A good bright yellow, lots of flowers over a few weeks. Generally hardy and resilient, but does like to dry out or be in too dark a spot (tolerates light shade) best in full sun.

I bought these last year and they have been a great success in my garden. I have now left the flowers to die off on the plant and hopefully look good as seed heads over winter. When or how should i cut them back? Have i done the right thing?

OC

Hello, I tend to leave mine uncut as they do look nice in winter - then cut them back to just above ground level when they start to look too tatty.

Helen

hello plant doctor, Question for my cutting garden. I have a patch full of tulip bulbs which will flower in april. Once these are over, I would like to have another flower to cut for late summer. So that I would have a succession of flowers. Which combination would work with tulips? many thanks
