Orange Coneflower blooms from midsummer through fall with bold yellow-orange flowers that nearly cover the entire plant. The bloom period can be prolonged by removing spent blossoms. Growing from two to four feet high the dense plants have deep green foliage and sturdy stems, with good form all season-long. A good nectar source, Rudbeckia fulgida is visited by butterflies and other pollinating insects. Native to the eastern area of the Midwest, it does best in full sun to light shade in a rich soil. Orange Coneflower prefers consistent moisture and becomes more drought tolerant once established.
