Rudbeckia 'American Gold Rush' has a wonderful dome-like habit with golden yellow flowers that have black centers. The sunshine-like flowers have narrow petals that curve downward and are produced in abundance from mid-summer into early fall. A great addition to any sunny landscape. A shorter cultivar of native Rudbeckia fulgida var. deamii.

Homeowner Growing Tips: Grow in full sun or partial shade, in well-drained soil. Very good in heavy, clay soils. Prefers not to dry out, but is somewhat drought tolerant once established. Avoid overcrowding, as these like good air circulation. Deadhead throughout the season to encourage rebloom. Leave the final spent flower stalks on the plant in autumn, as the seeds will feed the birds; cut back in late winter. Divide in spring, if desired.

    Delivery was quick and perfect. Plants have been in the ground for 3 weeks and are looking good for newly planted flowers in 3rd week of September. They look hardy and ready to survive winter. Exceptional service, as always, from Romence.
