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.
Wildly popular for her over-the-top lambent flower-power and enduring compact stature, this disease-proof selection of our native Black-Eyed Susan occurred at Andre Viette’s Virginia farm and was introduced by Blooms of Bressingham. Tidy, lanceolate deep green leaves and short, stocky upright stems lift a boundless sea of buoyant golden yellow daisy-style blooms with purplish cocoa-colored disks. Delighting song birds, pollinators and florists, clumping ‘Viette’s Little Suzy’ can be tucked into meadows, perennial borders, cottage gardens or massed to make a flashy statement, while it triumphs over deer, poor dry soil and air pollution.
Size: 18" – 2' 0" high x 18" – 2' 0" wide.
