Black-eyed Susan

Species: Rudbeckia fulgida.

Planted 04.08 Vistabile fence border back garden

Bought Woolwrths £2.50 - multi buy 2 for £5 (£2.99 each)

Hardiness: Hardy

Skill Level: Beginner

Soil type: Well-drained/light, Clay/heavy, Moist
Exposure: Full sun, Partial shade

Flowers: July - Oct
Height: 75cm in 5 years
Spread: 45cm " " "

Time to divide plants: September to March

The plant is short enough not to need staking, and does not spread so fast that frequent division is necessary, making it a very easy-care plant. Use it between other plants in a flower border, as it tolerates light shade, to extend the flowering season late into the year.

Looks good with:
Aster x frikartii 'Monch'
Verbena bonariensis
