Rudbeckia Varieties for the Flower Garden

The green centers of this orange and yellow flower give it versatility in cut flower arrangements, popping nicely against blue flowers like delphiniums, bachelor’s buttons, and asters. In this photo, the flowers contrast with the draping form of annual amaranth flowers, an heirloom also known as "love-lies-bleeding."

Buy small transplants sold in nursery cell packs in the spring for flowers that last from June until first frost. Although your original plants may not return, self-seeding will refill the flowerbed for the following season.
