'Goldsturm' Black-Eyed Susan Rudbeckia

Black-Eyed Susans have a long season of bloom and a sturdy, upright habit. The gold daisy-like flowers have a distinct dark brown central cone and are held on branching stems. Do not deadhead these cones if you want winter interest since the black seed heads remain attractive throughout the winter and the seeds provide a source of food for small birds.

A classic garden perennial, perfect for providing color in late summer and is especially showy in mass plantings.
