Rudbeckia Culture
Deadhead spent flowers to prolong blooming.
Light: Full sun to light shade.
Moisture: Once established, black-eyed Susans are fairly drought tolerant, but they perform best with regular watering in soil that does not completely dry out.
Hardiness: USDA Zones 3 - 10.
Propagation: Sow seeds in place 2 weeks before the last expected frost or give them a head start indoors 6-8 weeks before setting out. The seeds need light to germinate, so just press them into the soil surface - don't bury them. Some of the cultivars are decidedly perennial, and these are best propagated by dividing the root mass during the dormant season.
