Description

Brown Eyed Susan - Rudbeckia fulgida  is a Summer Standard

Brown Eyed Susan is a summer standard. This coneflower grows 8 to 20 yellow or orange petals that point down and out from its raised center. These summery blossoms have brown cone centers are held up on stiff, fuzzy green stems. The oval-shaped green leaves have prominent veins and cover the stem’s height, supporting a single flower head each. The leaves are of varying size, usually slender, and are also fuzzy. The nectar and seeds they supply attract birds, bees, butterflies, and wildlife.

 Brown Eyed Susans are a Lovely Addition For Every Landscape

Brown Eyed Susans are lovely daisy-like flowers that can grow up to five feet tall. The stems are hairy and have dark red stems. The stems end with one or two flowers, each of which is about 2 inches in diameter when fully bloomed. Each flower head has between six and twelve petals of bright golden yellow with a brown center. Six or more flowers may bloom at the same time, making a glorious display in the landscape.

To grow Brown- Eyed Susans, choose a spot in the partial sun and contains fertile, loamy dirt. The plant is reasonably drought tolerant but prefers to be watered when dry. The flower self-pollinates, and attracts bees and other pollen-seeking visitors to the garden. Nectar loving insects also enjoy the bright flowers of the Brown-Eyed Susan. Try this encouraging, sturdy biennial in your garden today. 

Brown Eyed Susan plants were often used by the Native Americans to treat several conditions.  They used this lovely plant to treat flu, colds and other infections.  It was also used as an astringent to clean sores and wounds and even in treating snake bites and worms or parasites in children.  It can also be used in drops to treat earaches.

Brown Eyed Susan Plant 

The native wildflower, the Brown Eyed Susan Plant (Rudbeckia triloba), delivers classic garden beauty to any property. The versatile plant is a perennial that looks gorgeous in containers, in borders, in cottage gardens, in wildflower meadows and lovely as cut flowers in a vase. The golden-yellow flowers attract beauty in nature with visits from butterflies and bees to drink their precious nectar and songbirds that dine on the seeds in autumn.

 

 These vivid flowers catch the eye with their dark chocolate centers and daisy-like characteristics. The Brown Eyed Susan Plant thrives in full sun, moderate moisture. It can grow between two and three feet tall and sometimes, up to five feet in height and more than a foot wide. It blooms from late July through September.

 

 The Brown Eyed Susan Plant is simple to grow and maintain because it can freely self-seed. Cutting off the spent blooms will keep a neat appearance for this robust and popular plant. However, to "set" the seeds, nursery experts recommend leaving the last flush of flowers over the winter. The time to cut them back would be in early to mid-spring.

 

 The cheery wildflower grows nicely in USDA zones 4-8.

 

 By the way, the Brown Eyed Susan Plant is a cousin to the Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta) but is a bit smaller in flower size.
