Red-Flowering Rudbeckia

by Charlie Nardozzi


Rudbeckia, or black-eyed Susans, are native American wildflowers that have recently gone through a breeding revolution. There are many new selections of this tough, easy-to-grow perennial that feature different flower colors and sizes. The latest in the rudbeckia revival is a variety that features red flowers.

Cherry Brandy rudbeckia (Rudbeckia hirta 'Cherry Brandy') grows 2 feet tall and wide and has 3- to 4-inch diameter, cherry-red blooms that form in early summer and flower until frost. The plant is heat- and drought-tolerant and adapts to most soil conditions. It makes a great addition to a perennial border and also grows well in containers.
