Rudbeckia laciniata 'Autumn Sun'

Cutleaf Coneflower

Rudbeckia laciniata ‘Autumn Sun’ is the perfect vertical solution to the back of the border garden! This Cutleaf Coneflower is a long-blooming perennial producing bright, golden yellow flowers from July through September, that stand anywhere from 4’ to 7’ tall at maturity. The abundance of attractive blooms invites a plethora of pollinators, including various bee, skipper, and butterfly species, such as the revered Monarch butterfly. If spent flowerheads are left to persist on the plant following its bloom period, songbirds such as the American Goldfinch can be found enjoying the nutritious seeds. Despite its tall stature, this particular selection manages to remain upright in areas with good drainage, and doesn’t typically require staking.
