Black Eyed Susan {25 Pots - 3 1/2 in.}

A true garden classic, perennial plant with dramatic 1- to 2-inch, sunny, golden-yellow blooms encasing a chocolate brown/black cone center, Rudbeckia fulgida 'Goldsturm' (or Black Eyed Susan as she is commonly called) promises to deliver height, depth and contrast to any landscape. She is outstanding in mass plantings, as a border perennial, or as groundcover sure to choke out most weeds.

Tolerant of heat, drought and poor soil, perennials do not come any easier or more hardy and striking. It's practically a gardening crime not to include this stately beauty amongst your perennials.

Sometimes misspelled as 'Goldstrum', the leaves are coarse, dark-green, lanceolate to ovate, and 3-6 inches long; its stem leaves are smaller, almost bract-like. From mid-July to October, the "gold storm" can blanket the tops of 18- to 30-inch tall plants.

'Goldsturm' works exceptionally well in both residential and commercial landscapes, because of its durability and dramatic visual impact. It attracts butterflies, makes an excellent cut flower, and adapts to a wide variety of soil conditions. Once established, it spreads rapidly. Deadheading is recommended to prolong the blooming season; this is one of the plants whose seeds drive birds crazy.

In the winter, its black stems and seed-heads add contrast and texture to the muted tans of other ornamental grasses. Though tolerant of poor soils and mild droughts, it grows best in well-drained, consistently moist soil.

Received plants three days from order. It has been hot, but plants arrived in good shape. They are planted and look a little wilty right now, but I am sure they will be fine. CG does a wonderful job of packing the plants.

Ordered early with a shipping date of the last week of Feb. Received plants in great shape and I am now waiting for some better weather to plant. Placed open box in my sun room and they are doing great. Can't wait to get them planted in the yard....

Plants arrived in good condition.
I was disappointed that some of my plants weren't in the best condition when they arrived. I planted all of them and there are now 6-8 that are completely dead.

Just received my second order of Black Eyed Susans. The the plants have come healthy but a couple needed some TLC. I kept them in the cardboard box and fertilized them, keeping them out of direct sun. Within ten days I had beautiful plants which I planted... Read full review >
