Description

Rudbeckia triloba produces loads of bright yellow 1"-1.5" blooms with black centers on fine, branched, dark stems from midsummer to fall. It may be short-lived but readily self-sows. Also known as Brown-Eyed Susan, Rudbeckia triloba goes well with grasses and other prairie natives. An upright plant that gets fairly tall, it is best planted near the back of the border. It makes a wonderful cut flower.

Rudbeckia triloba is native to a large portion of the United States from Minnesota to Vermont, south to Georgia and westward into portions of the Great Plains. It is naturally found in grasslands, prairies and savannas, at the edges of creeks and riverbanks, and disturbed areas such as abandoned fields, roadsides and railroad right of ways.

We ship via UPS or USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
