Rudbeckia General Information

Rudbeckia Maxima are also commonly called cabbage leaf coneflower in reference to the basal foliage. Excellent addition to naturalized areas, wildflower meadows, prairies, cottage gardens and borders. Let flower stocks remain after bloom to attract goldfinches-they love the seed.

Rudbeckia Plant Care

Minimal seeding. Prefer moist, fertile well-drained soil. Although drought tolerant, Rudbeckia bloom better with ample moisture. Pinching can produce more compact plants in taller varieties. Can be divided every 4 years in spring. Spent foliage can be cut back to 6" for a flush of new growth.
