Buy Rudbeckia fulgida var. sullivantii 'Goldsturm' black-eyed susan: Large golden-yellow flowerheads

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

    Large, golden-yellow, daisy-like flowers up to 12cm (5in) across with cone-shaped, blackish-brown centres from August to October. This award-winning black-eyed Susan looks great planted in bold drifts with other late summer-flowering perennials and ornamental grasses. Coping well in a sunny spot, it's ideal for the middle of a border 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.

LOvely but fragile!


Eaten by slugs alas!




i would not purchase again


i bought two of these - one did not flower at all and the other failed after first season




Easy to grow


This rudbeckia did really well in my north facing garden. It is reliable, long flowering from end July and easy to grow. Repeats every year even in a part shade area


SW London


reliable and cheerful


The feature of my Rudbeckia that surprises most is its ability to thrive in an Easterly orientation surrounded by shade loving plants like Skimmia, Mahonia and Solomon's seal. It receives very little sun, perhaps only two hours a day. There it is in August, cheerfully smiling away and looking as healthy as can be enlivening the border when it is needed. Such a joy!

Such a happy plant


Bought this last year and it flowered stood there so brilliant and bright and cheered us up ever time we looked at it.fingers crossed it returns this year.




Lovely Flowers


Planted Goldstrums in late spring 2019. There was lots of Blooms throughout the summer and Autumn. One of the plants still has a couple of blooms remaining even now in MARCH 2020 ! I expect the plants to be even more successful this summer as they are more established. The flowers look fantastic. I've always wanted large ' Daisy ' like flowers in my garden and never knew what to try. The Goldstrums were a great find and I am so pleased I bought them from Crocus. I am really looking forward to this summer with my garden back in full colour !

Good quality plants.


Good quality plants, delivered in good time and was carefully packaged. Looking forward to seeing them bloom again this year.




A lovely health plant


It went into a border to compliment other plants




I would buy this plant again


A very easy plant. Flowers from mid summer through to late autumn. Appears to be happy in full sun or light shade.




A burst of sunshine in September


I planted this in August and wondered if it had died. But it survived a northern winter and started to sprout upwards. By September I had a wonderful display of flowers.
