Compact Black-Eyed Susan
Named by Linnaeus in honor of his teacher Olaf Rudbeck, this North American genus includes 25 to 30 species, many of them famous summer and late season bloomers. These easily grown selections promise to brighten borders and naturalized meadows plus make dandy additions to bouquets. Offering late fall and winter interest, they combine well with Asters, Eupatoriums and grasses.
Somewhat wilder looking than most of the well-known cultivars, this species holds bright orange-yellow flowers with densely clustered petals on strong, wiry stems. In our garden, its open habit is backed by Persicaria ‘Summer Dance’.
Blooms late July–September.
Size: 2' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
