Rudbeckia hirta – Rudbeckia hirta Native Wild Flower Garden Pollinator Fresh Seeds
Black-eyed Susan – Rudbeckia hirta is a mid-height Summer-season flowering native perennial at home in gardens or wildflower meadows. Flowering July thru September and are considered essential for providing nectar for pollinators and plentiful seed for fall birds.
Raised from my own pollinator-friendly plants these golden daises are a familiar and welcome site thru fall till late November.
Rudbeckia hirta reaches 3-4ft high when in-flower, a young plant may only have a few flowering stems but as the plant matures, by years 2-4 the number of flowering stems will dramatically increase.
Hairy mid-green rosette of leaves in Spring make a great background to seasonal bulbs
