Rudbeckia hirta 'Prairie Sun'
Common name: Black-eyed Susan, Gloriosa Daisy
‘Prairie Sun’ grows on stiff, upright, leafy stems making great cut flower. It produces a long summer-to-fall bloom of large, daisy-like flowers (to 5” diameter) featuring orange rays tipped with lemon yellow and greenish center disks. Flowers bloom atop strong, sometimes-branching stems. ‘Prairie Sun’ is an All-America Selection winner in 2003 and a Gold Medal winner at the 2003 Fleuroselect trials in England.
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.
Rudbeckia hirta is a Biennial or short-lived perennial that is winter hardy to Zones 4-8. Whether or not plants survive from one year to the next, they freely self-seed and will usually remain in the garden through self-seeding.
