Black Eyed Susan, Goldilocks
Rudbeckia hirta 'Goldilocks'
Type:Perennials
Zone:4

Pruning Code:10/23 to 10/24



Care Instruction:
Soil and Moisture: Black Eyed Susans prefer average to rich soils high in organic matter. Water regularly when young, but quite drought tolerant once mature. Best flower production will occur when kept evenly moist.
Fertilizing: These plants are light feeders, and often no fertilization is required. A light sprinkling of 10-10-10 granules in the spring every other year is more than sufficient.
Trimming: After the foliage has died back due to frost or freezing weather, cut back to the ground and remove debris.
Division: Divide every 4 or 5 years during the early spring as new growth emerges.
