‘American Gold Rush’ Black-eyed Susan is similar to Rudbeckia ‘Goldsturm’, but is much more disease resistant in humid, hot summers. The yellow daisy-like flowers have striking black center cones, and the bloom period extends from early July until late summer. This selection was made by Brent Horvath of Intrinsic Perennials. Like ‘Goldsturm’, Rudbeckia x ‘American Goldrush’ spreads to make a large patch eventually, but with beautiful clean foliage. Best in full sun. 2021 PHS Gold Medal Plant.
