(22-26" tall x 18-24" wide) 'American Gold Rush' Black Eyed Susan PP#284498 is an exciting new introduction for the pollinator garden, wildflower meadow, or mixed border. 'American Gold Rush' gives all the rich color of classic Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia), with none of the disease issues. This hybrid is specifically bred to be resistant to Septoria leaf spot. Thanks to this innovation, 'American Gold Rush' will grace the garden throughout the growing season with strong, deep green foliage. 'American Gold Rush' is more compact, with foliage that is slightly narrower than the well-known 'Goldsturm'. In mid-summer, this low-maintenance perennial will erupt with classic golden blooms on charcoal centers. Hearty blooms will last for several weeks, much to the enjoyment of gardeners and pollinators alike. Rudbeckia are happiest planted in full sun, and they prefer an evenly moist soil -- plant in spring or fall and find a well-drained spot that is moisture retentive, but not boggy. (Rudbeckia)
