Rudbeckia

Rudbeckia

Photo by Linda Summer 2011.

At the time of this photo, the Rudbeckia had not yet bloomed.

Rudbeckia produce golden-yellow daisy-like flowerheads with drooping petals. They grow quite tall. Attractive seedheads extend the season of interest and bring birds into the garden for feeding. Plants may topple unless given a little support.

Cut any fallen stems to the basal foliage before winter and leave the rest. Usually all stems will fall over sometime in the winter, but they are still enjoyed by the birds.
