How to Grow Rudbeckia


Deep-yellow, daisy-like flowers on 2 1/2-foot stems make Rudbeckia a showy, summer-blooming perennial (meaning it grows back year after year) for the sunny garden.

Things You'll Need

  • Bypass Pruners
  • Fertilizers
  • Garden Trowels
  • Mulch
  • Plants

Planting Rudbeckia

  • Plant Rudbeckia in full sun in well-drained soil.

  • Add a light application of organic fertilizer to the planting hole.

  • Set plants 1 foot apart.

  • Place plants no deeper than they were when growing in containers.

  • Mulch around but not on top of plants with 3 inches of organic compost.

  • Water well until soil is completely moist.

Choosing Rudbeckia

Caring for Rudbeckia

  • Cut off old flower stems at their base using bypass pruners; this will encourage more flowers.

  • Trim off old leaves in early spring using bypass pruners.
