Rudbeckia triloba provides profuse blooms of adorable, 1 1/2–2 1/2", bright yellow flowers with small, black/brown centers. Wiry, well-branched stems have few leaves, making this an excellent cut flower. In late summer to fall, it is absolutely smothered with blooms.
Makes a great filler or accent flower in bouquets. This native U.S. wildflower tolerates most conditions, including drought, once established. Short-lived perennial in Zones 3–10; typically flowers first year and grows 50-60 inches tall if started early. A wonderful nectar source for bees, butterflies, moths, skippers and numerous other insects.
