Rudbeckia triloba is a fun small-flowered multi-branched, native wildflower also known as brown-eyed Susan.
Brown-eyed Susan – Rudbeckia is a mid-height Summer-season flowering native perennial at home in gardens or wildflower meadows. Flowering July thru September and is considered essential for providing nectar for pollinators and plentiful seeds for fall birds and continues to flower long after R. hirta has gone to seed.
Raised from my own pollinator-friendly plants these golden coneflowers are familiar and the seedheads are a welcome site thru fall till late November.
Rudbeckia 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
Thriving on poor soils and competing with grasses Rudbeckia is happy on the prairie or at home in the cottage garden, plant with bee balm, goldenrod, and asters.
These Rudbeckia species are widespread with over 20 species and numerous garden varieties in all shapes, a few color variations, and flower shapes.
Black-eyed Susan is tolerant of dry to mesic soils and flowers best in full sun, can also be grown successfully in a gravel garden.
Popular with an array of pollinators, particularly butterflies and bees.
