Rudbeckia in summer

I always thought of this as a fall-bloomer, but apparently not. The stuff is taking over my yard! I have huge stands of this that grow larger by the minute, should have chosen something other than 'Goldsturm' I guess. Cheery, at least.

Love it!!!!! I'm struggling with a tiny patch of it in my garden now. Do you know if it reseeds itself or spread by underground runners?


RE: Rudbeckia in summer

Thanks, yardrat. This one spreads by runners. I bought two tiny little $1.50 pots of it about 3 years ago and didn't know what I was getting into. It's pretty, but a pest if you can't give it plenty of room. I dig out tons of it and give to friends every year (with fair warning to all). Good luck with yours, I don't think you can kill it. (smile)

RE: Rudbeckia in summer

Looks great! I have lots and lots of it in our garden. I think I am going to have to dig some of it out's starting to take over.

RE: Rudbeckia in summer

These (well, maybe not that variety) are all over in the ditches and state parks here now, they are SO pretty!
