By kqcrna on Oct 30, 2011 6:04 AM, concerning plant: Black Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia fulgida var. sullivantii 'Goldsturm')

Perennial plant of the year in 1999. If you can't grow anything else, you can grow this plant. It provides bright sunny flowers for weeks in late summer. Its spread is relatively fast and the clump grows dense flowers within a few years. Divide and share with friends every 2 or 3 years.

Deer and rabbits have never eaten mine in the 5 years or so that I have gown this plant. It is also very drought tolerant. It attracts butterflies, and birds enjoy the seeds. Wintersows well. It is a long-lived perennial that loves the heat here in my zone 6 yard.

Compared to rudbeckia hirta, blossoms of Goldsturm are smaller, but more profuse, and overall height is shorter. It is much longer-lived than the hirtas. Its stems are strong and they stand up well to heavy rain and wind.

Plant is ranked as a noxious weed. Plant itself is quite 'prickly'. A robust plant. Preferred habitat - fields, pastures, roadsides, open woods, and degraded prairies.
The fluffy down from mature heads is used by the American Goldfinch as a favored nest lining.

Found in moist to wet woodlands and near banks of streams.

Flowers are recurving orange turks cap type, similar to l.Henryi, but somewhat smaller and with much straighter stems. Scent is of ripe melons.The nectary furrows are a distinct feature, varying from deep olive through to black in some flowers.
