What’s in Season – October

A favourite of the early autumn border, Rudbeckia fulgida ‘Goldsturm’ or Black Eyed Susan adds a splash of vibrant colour. A fast growing member of the daisy family it is tolerant of a wide range of conditions but will do best in full sunshine. It is low maintenance and attractive to insects so a great plant for a landscape scheme. It is a prairie plant from the USA  and my view is that it looks best grown in large swathes with grasses and other perennials where it’s golden colour will complement the brown and blacks of the seed heads and grasses which will be dying back for winter.
