General Information: 

Rudbeckia, also known as Black-Eyed Susan, is a genus of flowering plants that belong to the sunflower family. These stunning flowers are native to North America and are known for their striking yellow or orange petals with a dark center. They can grow up to 3 feet tall and are a favourite among pollinators, attracting bees, butterflies, and birds to your garden.

One of the main benefits of growing Rudbeckia is its low maintenance nature. These hardy plants are drought-tolerant and can thrive in a variety of soil conditions, making them perfect for beginner gardeners or those with busy schedules. They are also resistant to most pests and diseases.

Rudbeckia is a long-blooming flower, providing you with weeks of vibrant color in your garden. Their blooms typically appear in mid to late summer and continue well into the fall. This extended blooming period makes Rudbeckia a great choice for adding late-season interest to your landscape.

Another benefit of growing Rudbeckia is its versatility. These flowers can be grown in borders, flower beds, or containers, allowing you to incorporate them into any garden design. They also make excellent cut flowers, adding a pop of color to your indoor arrangements.

If you are an eco-conscious gardener, you will be pleased to know that Rudbeckia is a native plant that supports local ecosystems. By growing Rudbeckia, you are providing a valuable food source for pollinators and contributing to the overall biodiversity of your area.

 Rudbeckia prefers full sun but can tolerate partial shade. They require regular watering, especially during dry spells, but be careful not to overwater as this can lead to root rot. Deadheading spent blooms will encourage continuous flowering and help maintain a tidy appearance.
