Summer's over, but Rudbeckia's Winter Hearty!

Also known as Rudbeckia hirta, Gloriosa Daisy Tall Coneflower, 'Indian Summer', Conedish Sunflower, and Black or Brown eyed Susan. The leaves & stems are covered by short bristles, hence the name hirta Rudbeckia.   A commonplace, venerable, sometimes sentimental and often treasured wildflower. Commonly found in gardens and the wild natural environment alike. Division of plants 4 weeks prior to predicted frost dates will allow the roots time to renew themselves before old man Winter arrives!
