Rudbeckia 'American Gold Rush'
Common name: Black-eyed Susan
2020 All America Selections Perennial Award Winner
'American Gold Rush' is destined to be the new staple for landscapes! A dome-like habit of golden yellow flowers with black centers are produced heavily from July to September here in Michigan, with some color until frost. Finally, a Black Eyed Susan that's resistant to the Septoria leaf spot! Thanks to the thinner and hairier leaves, this hybrid Rudbeckia shows no signs of the fungus even in wet, humid conditions. From Brent Horvath of Intrinsic Perennial Gardens.
Do not deadhead these cones if you want winter interest since the black seed heads remain attractive throughout the winter and the seeds provide a source of food for small birds.
