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.
