Rudbeckia General Information:

Rudbeckia fulgida are upright, clump-forming perennials with deep-yellow, daisy-like flowers with a brown/black center cone. Long-lasting, prolific flowering.

Rudbeckia Plant Care:

Prefer moist, fertile well-drained soil. Although drought tolerant, Rudbeckia bloom better with ample moisture. Pinching can produce more compact plants in taller varieties. Allow seeds to fall to assure permanence in the garden. Spent flower heads can be cut back to prevent too many volunteers. Can be divided every 4 years in spring. Spent foliage can be cut back to 6" for a flush of new growth.
