Rudbeckia grandiflora ‘Sundance’
at Digging Dog

Rudbeckia

Black-Eyed Susan

Named by Linnaeus in honor of his teacher Olaf Rudbeck, this North American genus includes 25 to 30 species, many of them famous summer, especially late season, bloomers. These selections are easy to grow, make fine cut flowers, and will brighten any border or naturalized meadow. Offering interest also in the late fall and winter, they combine well with Aster, Eupatorium, and grasses.

Rudbeckia grandiflora ‘Sundance’ full sun

Reminiscent of a bright French parasol, ample golden yellow petals are elegantly draped around large, pointed, purplish brown central cones that captivate finches, floral designers and gardeners alike. An exciting new Jelitto introduction selected from the native drought tolerant species, which inhabits the western Mississippi valley, ‘Sundance’ grows tall with hairy, straight steadfast stems in no need of staking. Good-sized and deep green, oblong basal leaves anchor the late blooming fiesta described by a single sunlit flower topping each stalk and a multitude of stalks.

Consider massing in a more natural landscape or nestling into the border with Poa cita and Aster ‘Raydon’s Favorite’ for company.

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 2' 0"–3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
