Rudbeckia fulgida 'Goldsturm'

Reliable, easy-to-grow Black-eyed Susan is useful all kinds of ways. Practically anywhere you put it, it will come back every year in larger and larger clumps until you can divide and spread them around, eventually mass planting them if you like. Just give this plant a sunny spot and enjoy the golden-yellow flowers with their characteristic brownish-black eyes from Summer to Autumn.

Deadhead spent blooms. Beautiful planted en mass! Have a look at TCN's example photos. 

Perennial of the year in 1999 and 2002!
