Black-eyed Susan - Goldsturm
The Rudbeckia ‘Goldsturm Black-Eyed Susan’, Rudbeckia fulgida, is an easy to grow perennial with large flower heads of golden- yellow and black to brown centers.
The flower heads are 3½ to 5 inches across, with a plant spread of 18-24” and a height of 24”. The dark green foliage sits at the bottom on the tall daisy-like flowers that bloom from July to September.
Rudbeckia ‘Goldsturm' Black Eyed-Susan was selected Perennial of the Year in 1999, and one can see why! It is an extremely showy plant that is excellent for cut flowers; also heat and humidity tolerant.
This Black-Eyed Susan needs to be grown in full sun in somewhat moist soil conditions in a well-drained area.
Rudbeckia attracts butterflies, provides food for birds in the winter and is mildew-resistant.
For a stunning display, plant 'Goldsturm' in masses with Veronica ‘Goodness Grows’, Alchemilla ‘Lady’s Mantle’ or with ornamental grasses.
