Black-eyed Susan
Rudbeckia fulgida var. sullivantii

This perennial can grow to 3 feet and features numerous blooms atop branched stems. The plant features lance-shaped, deep green leaves. Blooms measure about 3 inches across. Plants spread and form large clumps, with up to 20 bright flowers per plant. These will bloom all summer long, and cutting will encourage new blooms. Black-eyed Susan is also a deer repellant. USDA Zones 3-9

TOH Tip: You can divide clumps in early fall to get more bloom for your buck from season to season.
