The flower heads are 3½ to 5 inches across, with a plant spread of 18-24" and a height of 24" The dark green foliage sits at the bottom on the tall daisy-like flowers and bloom from July to September. Rudbeckia 'Goldstrum Black Eyed-Susan' was selected Perennial of the Year in 1999, and one can see why. 'Black-Eyed Susans' need to be grown in full sun in somewhat moist soil conditions in a well-drained area. It is great in borders, for cut flowers or for naturalized areas.
