Why we love this flower:

  • Uses: Cut flower
  • Garden growth success: Easy

Rudbeckia Indian Summer is an all-time favorite Black Eyed Susan. With its semidouble and single blooms measuring 4–7", the sturdy stems provide vigorous branching, with cut flowers exceeding 20" in length. Requires no staking.

Rudbeckia requires long days to initiate flowering and will continue to produce some smaller blooms into the fall, but on shortened stems of reduced quality. Deadheading increases blooms during summer production.
