Brown Eyed Susan offers a profusion of brilliant yellow flowers with jet-black centers blooming from late July up until the first hard frost. This Rudbeckia grows from two to five feet tall, in a bushy habit with an open airy quality. Its lovely informal style is an excellent complement to any of the tall native grasses and common prairie wildflowers.

With a native range that extends from New York to Minnesota and south to Utah and Texas, the free-flowering Rudbeckia triloba is a short-lived perennial, and sometimes a biennial, depending upon the locale and conditions. Although short-lived, it self-sows readily on open soil. It prefers moderate moisture, but is very adaptable, and grows in almost any soil in full sun or light shade.
