“A golden rudbeckia with painterly dark markings on some petalsâreminiscent of the light and shadow cast around a campfire. Blackbird Rise Farm, where these seeds are collected, got its name from the red-winged blackbirds thatÂ visit the wildflowers of Maine. Rudbeckias are cheery, generally fuss-free perennials that compete well with weeds and easilyÂ adapt to a variety of garden conditions.
Direct sow any time of year or start indoors in late winter or early spring. Rudbeckias are hardy plants and compete fairly well with weeds once established, but they’ll need cultivation when young. They are not fussy about soil but need reasonable drainage. Plant somewhere where their bursting-forth mid-summer joy can be fully appreciated.”
