Buy Rudbeckia fulgida var. deamii black-eyed Susan: Daisy-like flower heads

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, preferably heavy but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Charming, daisy-like flowers with prominent, cone-shaped, blackish-brown centres appear in abundance from August to October. This beautiful 'black-eyed Susan' is an excellent choice for the middle of a late summer border and it associates particularly well with ornamental grasses. It is a particularly free-flowering variety, that is best planted in bold drifts in a sunny or partially shady site that doesn't dry out over summer.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide congested colonies in autumn or spring. Support with ring stakes or brushwood well before the flowers appear.

We tend to think of "prairie plants" as being drought-tolerant, for some reason, but not all them are. (Prairies are not desert - they are much wetter than you might imagine.) If your soil is dry or well-drained and you want to grow rudbeckia, this is a good one to consider. The clue is in the leaves, which are hairier than in Rudbeckia 'Goldsturm' - an indication that the plant can cope in dryer conditions. R. fulgida var. deamii still has the same yellow flowers and is almost identical in every other respect.

having just purchased 7 perennial plants in 9cm pots do I need to repot to larger size pots before planting out next spring,unable to plant in garden at the moment due to altering the garden layout .

Yes, if you cant plant them out straight away, then you should pot them up as this will give the roots a chance to spread out - and bigger roots mean bigger plants when they are ready to plant in spring.
