Such a splash of sunshine in our late summer gardens. Thank you!
Thats a great way to describe Rudbeckias, I had just said a ‘good doer’, I should have added the word jolly’!
I grew two annual Rudbeckias this year too, ‘Rustic Dwarf’ and ‘Goldilocks’, they are much showier than this sturdy reliable one.
Your Rudbeckia is in such great form, lovely photo.
Hi Charlie, thank you, these Rudbeckias are a favourite of mine.
I have a lot of this, too. I love how dependable it is. Beautiful picture!
Its like a trusty old friend!
It is indeed a doer. I have lots in my parkway beds – lots of carefree summer color.
Carefree, I like that description too. 🙂
Oohhhh, loving this! Thank you for sharing and stopping by my site! Is this shot from your garden?
Thanks Andrea, my garden is on the banner at the top of my wordpress site, it looks easier than it actually is, we are east facing, sandy soil, frost pocket and high water table. We removed the conifer windbreak when we moved here because we liked the view over fields behind and I wanted more light in my veg garden. I grow these cheery Rudbeckias in less than ideal conditions and they return every year, spreading and blooming without a fuss.I work as a gardener too, so when I come home and they greet me with undemanding smiling faces, its a lovely sight. 🙂
I need to find out more about the different Rudbeckias, I grew one annual one this year and am pleased with that.
My Mum grows the annual Rudbeckia ‘Irish Eyes’, on chalky soil which has a green centre, thats a good one. I tried ‘Rustic Dwarf” and ‘Goldilocks’ this year on free draining sandy soil both of which I recommend, but mixed up the plants during the course of bringing them on, so not certain which is which, all three are lovely and thrived with not a great deal of additional water.
