Rudbeckia 'Goldsturm', is a very hardy perennial with golden blooms over a long duration in the middle of summer. This is the traditional black-eyed susan used in landscapes for years and is to a force to be reckoned with. The leaves are a rich green and the plants slowly creep to form a dense groundcover that is great for keeping weeds from poking through. Rarely bothered by deer and loved by butterflies. A top choice for drought tolerant ground cover, erosion control, meadow plantings, and naturalizing. A US Native Perennial.
