Rudbeckia Fulgida var. Fulgida Black-Eyed Susan

Shiny, deep green foliage. Smaller and finer than Rudbeckia 'Goldsturm' with 10 weeks of flowers from July into October. Six weeks after 'Goldsturm' is brown, this plant is at its peak! Excellent cut flower. Provides late summer nectar for butterflies and seeds in the winter for birds. Beautiful and versatile!

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