Rudbeckia is a sun-loving plant, but it grows well in partial shade, accepts any garden soil. Top dressing with complex mineral fertilizer will not interfere.
Rudbeckia in the photo, like many other representatives of the Aster family, breeds by dividing the bush or by seeds, multiplies abundantly by self-sowing. The bushes are divided in spring or autumn, the transplant is easily tolerated by the plant. Seeds can be sown directly into open ground. Blooms in the second year, colors - from golden yellow to orange, with a dark center. There may also be two-color ones.
Rudbeckia does not require special care, but it does not tolerate drought quite well, therefore, requires timely watering. The flowering period of the plant can be extended by removing faded inflorescences, leaving a stem 10 cm long. Long stems must be tied up. In June, it is advisable to cut the plant in half for added resistance. In autumn, it is better to cut off the stems completely.
Young plants do not tolerate a strong drop in temperature, while adults can easily survive frosts in autumn, changing only the shade of the inflorescences. After the end of flowering, rudbeckia does not lose its elegant appearance, it looks attractive. Even receptacles that rise above the plants for a long time look interesting after the end of the flowering period.
