Rudbeckia require ground which is moist and well-drained throughout their growing season. They prefer full sun or partial shade and grow in all types of ground from clay to sandy soils. Water regularly during the summer months, Rudbeckia are low maintenance if the soil is naturally kept moist. Remove faded flower stems to prolong flowering. In autumn, cut back to a neat mound or, if you wouldn’t mind a few more Black Eyed Susan plants, let the last blooms go to seed for the birds. The seed heads can also be cut and dried to propagate new plants.
