Rudbeckias are one of the backbones of my summer garden. I often see some exciting newer cultivars but have not had great success with having them overwinter year to year. I am lucky to have some unnamed varieties which seed around the garden each year. Here are some pictures of a named cultivar, Cherokee Sunset, which I saw saw other day.

Beautiful! I have tried so many times but these fancy types never over winter for me. A shame as I just love them.

I sometimes plant one of the new fancy ones hoping the bees will give some nice volunteer seedlings.

Rudbeckia has not done well at all for me. Going to try it one more time next year and see.

The seedlings haven't been as double as the Cherokee Sunset but I think they are just as pretty.
