Sweet black eyed susan (Rudbeckia subtomentosa) starter plant (dormant)


Sweet black Eyed Susan Rudbeckia subtomentosa . The typical black eyed susan is a short lived plant. The ones usually in garden centers are variations of Rudbeckia fulgida. This one, sweet black eyed susan is a wonderful long lived sun loving plant that is perfect for butterfly/ pollinator gardens. It usually has longer, narrower petals.

These have gone dormant for the year, but still have excellent root growth and can be planted anytime the ground isn’t frozen. Plants continue to grow roots without foliage. Just treat as is though it were still growing and water through any prolonged dry spells. These are grown outside here in Michigan. They may still have some foliage or yellowing foliage if ordered in early fall but as fall progresses and through winter, will just be old stems. Planting dormant plants is a great way to get plants established for next season!

All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot especially if heavily rooted but we prefer to rip the sides or remove and compost the fabric when planting.
