Southern Gardening: Southerners love rudbeckia
A favorite flower with almost every Southern gardener is the black-eyed Susan, known botanically as rudbeckia. These plants produce an abundance of bright yellow flowers, each with a dark button-shaped cone in the center.
There are several species for gardeners to choose from. Rudbeckia hirta is a Mississippi native wildflower and is a staple plant in naturalized areas and meadows. Black-eyed Susans are also reliable garden and landscape performers for the butterfly garden.
Some varieties are true annuals, others are true perennials and the rest are somewhere in between. It really doesn’t matter which you choose because all will put on a summer show in the landscape.
