Nothing quite says summer like the blooms of a Black Eye Susan. We are excited to offer a new cultivar of this North American staple that has resistance to mildew and leaf spot. American Gold Rush is a strong producer from July to September and will provide strong mounds of golden flowers for months on end. These are a great choice for a native plant that thrives in the midwest in a variety of conditions.

Caring for Black Eye Susan - American Gold Rush - Rudbeckia
Black Eye Susan, also known as rudbeckia, is a wonderful perennial native to the U.S. midwest and prairies. It does best in a light loamy soil, but will do well in any well-drained soil. Full sunlight and heat are best for full flowering, while they can tolerate some light shade, we recommend at least 6 hours of full sun each and every day. Once established they are very drought resistant making them a great plant for those looking for a low water/ low maintenance garden. As a perennial flower, if cared for correctly rudbeckia will return with new growth each year.
