American Gold Rush Black-eyed Susan is a fabulous new variety of this popular perennial, also called Rudbeckia. The independent All-American Selections trials, the best test there is, made it their Winner in 2020, so don’t just take our word for how great it is – take theirs. In bloom from mid-June to mid-September, it is one of the longest-blooming perennials, and a great way to liven up your garden once spring is over, without the work of planting annuals over and over. The profusion of golden-yellow flowers are fabulous, each one 3 inches across, with that rich black center we all love. In bloom it stands close to 2 feet tall, with a basal clump at least that width. It’s big enough to make a real statement, but one or two fit easily into even a small garden. Mass plant it for a spectacular look fronting your shrub beds, or to fill awkward narrow beds. Tough and drought-resistant, it’s great too in casual plantings, meadows and wild gardens – and yes, it’s a bona-fide native plant – just an extra special seedling.

  • Compact, with large basal leaves as ground-cover
  • Abundant golden blooms even on just one plant
  • Flowers from mid-June to mid-September
  • Drought-resistant and super-easy to grow
  • All-American Selection Winner, 2020

Plant the American Gold Rush Black-eyed Susan in full sun for the best results, although it will take a little shade without any serious issues. Plant in any well-drained soil, including poor soils, rocky soils and urban gardens. Once established it is very drought-resistant. Rarely troubled by pests or diseases, or by deer. Attracts butterflies and pollinators. Cut out any flowering stems that have no more active blooming, and cut the entire plant to the ground in late fall. Reliably winter-hardy in colder parts of the country.
