Rudbeckia General Information:

Rudbeckia hirta are wonderful, free flowering daisies in colors from yellow through bronze and mahogany. You can have them for years, but the original plants will only last a few seasons. But wait! The plants self-seed readily, and if you learn to recognize the slightly hairy seedlings and allow a few to develop where you want them, you can have as many as you want for many years.

Rudbeckia Plant Care:

Best in average to moist soil and a sunny location. Seedheads may be left for winter interest if desired. Cut plants back to the ground in early spring.
