{black eyed susan, goldsturm}
Rudbeckia fulgida
50+ seeds

Black Eyed Susans are native to North-America and are perfect for cut flowers, as the more you cut the more will grow to replace them. Black Eyed Susans are easy to grow and needs no attention or watering, even in drought. Birds are drawn to Black Eyed Susan’s tiny seeds, providing them with much needed winter food. When grown from seed Black Eyed Susans may need one season to establish roots before flowering. Black Eyed Susans spread both from roots and seeds. Be sure to plant in a part of the garden where they will have ample space and won't crowd other plants.

{planting information}
Days to Germination: 7-14 days
Lifecycle: perennial
Zone: 3-9
Sun Light: Full sun to partial shade
Height:1-3 feet
Spread: 1-1.5 feet
Bloom time: mid summer, late summer, early fall, late fall (tolerates frost)
Special notes: seeds require light for germination, seeds require stratification (see below)

{how to plant}
Black Eyed Susan seeds need to be stratified. Stratification is a process where winter conditions are simulated so that germination may occur. Seeds may be sown in fall for natural stratification or simply store seeds in an airtight container in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours before sowing. Like many perennials black eyed susans sometimes require one full season of growth to establish root structure before flowering.

Seeds can be sown outdoors in spring or early summer, or indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost. The seeds require light for germination. If the flowerheads are allowed to remain, the plant will self-seed and new plants will grow the next season. Deadhead to prolong blooming and reduce self-seeding
