Rudbeckia fulgida

Orange Coneflower is a native perennial found in Eastern North America. It’s clump forming and blooms best in full sun. It favors consistently moist soils but will tolerate some drought conditions once established. It would make a great addition to rain gardens and bird or pollinator friendly habitats. Leaves are green and ovate in shape. Flowers are yellow to orange with dark brownish/purple centers. Flowers draw in a large variety of native bees and butterflies. Seedheads will persist into winter and attract birds like Goldfinches and Juncos, which feed on them.
