Viettes Little Suzy Rudbeckia delivers a profusion of radiant, deep yellow flowers encompassing a dark brown disc. Viettes Little Suzie Rudbeckia is a power performer with a compact size. Oblong-shaped medium green leaves offer a nice backdrop to the colorful daisy-like flowers, which bloom continually from midsummer through fall. This perennial is perfectly at home in containers or planted in golden drifts in a mixed border, or naturalized in larger areas.
Extremely easy to grow and care for, Viettes Little Suzy Rudbeckia is a compact, clump-forming plant. This variety is disease resistant and drought tolerant, which adds to the no-fuss category. Create a stunning display when pairing this rudbeckia with late-summer-blooming, blue and purple asters and perennial geraniums. They have a high wildlife value, attracting birds, several types of butterflies, and beneficial insect pollinators. Viettes Little Suzie Rudbeckia is deer and rabbit resistant and grows in Hardiness Zones 4-8. Over time, it will reach 12-14 inches tall and up to 24 inches wide. The pretty yellow flowers are also long lasting in cut-flower arrangements.
Viettes Little Suzie Rudbeckia Care
Plant Viettes Little Suzie Rudbeckia in full or partial sun, although the best blooming occurs in full sun. Viettes Little Suzie Rudbeckia prefers moist, well-draining, organically rich soil, although they will become tolerant of drier conditions once established. Keep the soil consistently moist for the first year after planting to get them off to a good start.
You have the option of keeping the plant tidy throughout the growing season by deadheading spent flowers to extend and encourage blooming. In late fall, cut the entire plant to a few inches above the ground, or allow the last blooms to go to seed to feed the birds.
Viettes Little Suzie Rudbeckia Spacing
Plant Viettes Little Suzie Rudbeckia in drifts for outstanding swaths of golden-yellow color. It works well in native, rain, and pollinator gardens, cottage-style applications, in meadows, and other naturalized areas. If planting in large drifts, space plants 20 inches or more on center; mature established plants will eventually spread naturally.
