Rudbeckia hirta

Black-Eyed Susan

Black-Eyed Susan is considered a biennial, but since it seeds so readily, Rudbeckia hirta does not disappear from the garden. This native wildflower has deep yellow petals surrounding a black cone, which are an important food source for pollinators and songbirds,  such as the goldfinch.  It is the larval host plant of the Silvery Checkerspot butterfly and attracts a specialist Mining bee.  Over the winter, their seeds provide food for songbirds, such as the goldfinch.
