Earlier flowering than others, Goldblitz Black Eyed Susan is an excellent choice for some late summer color. Also known as Rudbeckia fulgida, ‘Goldblitz’ develops a mass of golden yellow flowers with a contrasting brown center above deep green foliage. Growing to around 2 feet high, Goldblitz Black Eyed Susan is a reliable and versatile perennial. 

Loved by pollinators and songbirds, Goldblitz Black Eyed Susan forms neat clumps over the growing season. Deer and rabbit resistant, this rudbeckia is hardy and tough, and grows well in zones 3 to 9. Native to North America, it is drought tolerant once established and is low maintenance when planted in the right place. This perennial is most effective when planted as a group.

Goldblitz Black Eyed Susan Care

For Goldblitz Black Eyed Susan to thrive, it needs full sun–think 6 or more hours of direct sun a day. When it comes to the soil type, ‘Goldblitz’ is not fussy, just as long as it is free draining. Watering is needed to help this perennial establish, after which it can cope with dry conditions. Fertilization is not normally needed and can even cause excessive growth at the expense of the flowers. 

To encourage more blooms to appear, you can deadhead the flowers as they fade. You can rejuvenate old or tired plants by dividing them in spring. 

Goldblitz Black Eyed Susan Spacing

Goldblitz Black Eyed Susan can grow to 24 to 28 inches tall and 14 to 18 inches wide. When grown as a group, a spacing of around 18 inches apart, center on center, proves effective.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
