Rudbeckia

The perennial Rudbeckia also known as the Black-Eyed Susan offers warm yellow color from mid-summer and well into fall. These daisy-like flowers attract various pollinators making them a great plant to add to your garden to help sustain pollinating activity. They grow excellent in full sun creating a blanket of yellow when planted in mass quantity. They can also be used for fresh cut flowers in a vase with zinnias, hydrangeas, or any other late summer blooming plant. Their unique fuzzy foliage makes them deer resistant, as if you needed another great perk to add the Rudbeckia to your garden!
