Unleash a golden storm of beauty across your garden in fall, with the Goldsturm Black-eyed Susan. One of the most reliable and dependable perennials for bringing late color into your garden, this refined version of a native plant is admired around the world for its beauty and stunning impact. Growing along the front of your shrub beds, or among other perennials, it will make a quiet ground cover of dark-green leaves, until bursting into a carpet of golden daisies, each one with a glossy black center. The impact is amazing, and yet so easy to accomplish year after year. Often beginning as early as mid-summer, and continuing right through fall, it is undeterred by storms and rain, and keeps reliably bringing its pure gold beauty to any garden year after year. A real workhorse loved by professionals and amateurs alike, it belongs in profusion in every part of your garden.

  • Sea of golden blooms from mid-summer to late fall
  • Forms a dense carpet of dark-green leaves within a few years
  • Super-reliable almost everywhere in the country
  • Untroubled by deer or rabbits
  • One annual trim is all it takes for perfection

Plant the Goldsturm Black-eyed Susan in full sun, but it will tolerate a little partial shade if it has too. It grows in literally any kind of soil, from clay to sand and acid to alkaline. It should be well-drained, but that is the only requirement. It tolerates poor, rocky soils, yet enjoys rich garden beds too. Resistant to pests or diseases and untroubled by deer or rabbits, it is a reliable low-maintenance addition to any garden. Space plants 18 inches apart for dense coverage within a few years. Trim old flower stems and leaves in late fall – you can even use a string trimmer or mower if you have it over a large area.
