Rudbeckia fulgida

Black-eyed Susan, Orange Coneflower, Showy Coneflower

Relatives of wild plants from eastern North America, Coneflowers brighten perennial borders and meadow and wild gardens with months of late season color. Flowers are daisy-like in shades of orange and yellow, and some are double-petaled. Tall, tough, and easy to grow in all but soggy soils, they are cheerful and showy in a vase. Annuals are available in cell packs in spring, or sow directly in the garden like other wildflowers. Perennials are sold in containers in spring.
