Finally, a Black Eyed Susan that's resistant to the Septoria leaf spot!
Thanks to the thinner and hairier leaves, this hybrid Rudbeckia shows no signs of the fungus even in wet, humid conditions. A dome-like habit of golden yellow flowers with black centers are produced heavily from July to September, with some color until frost. Destined to be the new staple for landscapes!
