PLANT OF THE WEEK
RUDBECKIA FULGIDA VAR DEAMII
This is an easy-to-grow perennial that brings lots of sunshine to your garden with tonnes of black-eyed yellow daisies.
The coneflower, also sometimes known as black-eyed Susan, likes to grow in sunshine or partial shade and prefers well-drained, moist, quite fertile soil but really it’s not fussy and very low maintenance.
It will provide pollen for butterflies too.
Propagation is easy – you can either divide it in spring or grow it from seed.
