Rudbeckia fulgida 'Early Bird Gold' (Large Plant)

Coneflower, Black-eyed Susan

Hardy Perennial

As the name suggests, this superb Black Eyed Susan erupts into bloom weeks earlier than other perennial varieties and continues right up to the first frosts. Rudbeckia fulgida 'Early Bird Gold' produces its sunny-yellow, daisy-like blooms on sturdy, upright stems that make lovely cut flowers for a summer bouquet. Robust and easy to grow, this perennial Rudbeckia is ideal for bringing long lasting colour to herbaceous borders, attracting pollinating insects to its nectar rich blooms. Height and spread: 60cm (24").

Grow rudbeckia plants in sun or semi shade. Rudbeckia enjoys a fertile, preferably heavy soil that is rich in organic matter and well drained. Coneflowers resent drought and dislike soils that dry out in summer.
Feed and water rudbeckia plants regularly. Deadhead faded rudbeckia flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. Cut plants down to the crown at the end of the season and cover with a dry mulch of straw or wood chippings to protect from winter extremes.
