Brown Eyed Susan - Rudbeckia triloba
Sporting abundant golden yellow daisy-like flowers with black centers that fade to brown, R. triloba blooms in August and continues until frost. The cheery flowers are 1-2 inches across and bloom on branching stems, forming a mass of color. Typically seen along roadsides, in breaks in wooded areas, and open meadows or fields, R. triloba tolerates most conditions and is relatively drought tolerant. It is a biennial, blooming in the second year, but readily self-seeds so you are never in short supply. Plants are 3-5 feet tall and bushy unless crowded out. It makes an excellent cut flower – one stem is a whole bouquet. It is great for naturalizing, or in the garden where it pairs nicely with native grasses and asters for fall color. Easily propagated from seed, it is also a good pollinator plant.
If you have a favorite plant or photo, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org for a future publication.
