Rudbeckia Autumn Sun

These pretty yellow flowers belong to Rudbeckia Autumn Sun, one of my favourite garden plants.

Although still fairly small, this Rudbeckia will eventually grow 59 - 94 inches (150-240 cm) tall and 35 - 47 inches (90-120 cm) wide.

The gorgeous, daisy-like flowers appear during the summer and last for weeks. The blooms attract butterflies, and the plant, which is very easy to grow, is deer and rabbit resistant.

This is a beautiful addition to any garden, and I'm so glad I have one gracing my backyard.


  1. They sure are, crafty gardener! I just love them. And they attract littler critters, such as butterflies and bees, which is fine by me.
