Yellow Ox-eye Daisy~Rudbeckia!

This perennial is also commonly known as Black-eyed Susan and bears large, gorgeous blooms throughout the Summer.  From the daisy family, they produce golden yellow petals, with a vivid burnt orange colour at the center. They grow best in the full sun, in garden soil with good drainage. Spent flowers should always be removed to encourage new blooms.  Growing quickly in the Summer, they attract butterflies too, a win-win situation to enjoy nature!
