With 'Little Goldstar' Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia fulgida), you can enjoy yellow daisy-like flowers most of summer and into fall. Black-eyed Susans are favorite flowering plants for their unique dark center (black eye) and bright yellow petals. Little Goldstar gives you loads of golden blooms in a shorter package than most rudbeckias. Add drama and pollinators to your garden beds or a container with Little Goldstar.
Most rudbeckias grow to at least 3 feet high, but 'Little Goldstar' Black-Eyed Susan reaches only 14 to 16 inches high and wide. That means it fits well in containers or as a low grower at the front or middle of garden beds. Its golden yellow flowers appear above dark green leaves. The plant is native to North America and attracts native bees, birds and butterflies.
Little Goldstar Black-Eyed Susan Care
Place 'Little Goldstar' Black-Eyed Susan in full sun or part sun in zones 4 through 10. Rudbeckias can grow in nearly any type of soil that drains well and have average watering requirements. They need regular watering during periods of heat and drought. You can remove the flowers as they fade to make sure your Little Goldstar keeps blooming all season. The plant is perennial and should begin to green and grow each spring.
Little Goldstar Black-Eyed Susan Spacing
Plant a row or grouping of 'Little Goldstar' Black-Eyed Susan in a garden bed or feature a single plant as golden container drama. Space the plants 14 to 16 inches apart from their centers to give each plenty of room.
