Re: Rudbeckia

Not all Rudbeckias are called Black-eyed Susan, Jim.  One is called
Brown-eyed Susan, R. triloba.  Up here you have to watch the Rudbeckias that
are marked R. sp.   You could easily be getting one that acts as an annual.
I picked up a R. fulgida 'Goldsturm' a few weeks ago.  Meijers had another
one of their 1/2 price sales on quart new arrivals.  They were nicely
rooted, (well-filled-out on top too) quarts of very ordinary plants for
$1.50 ea.  But I can pot them on to gallons and sell them at my August plant
sale for $4.00 easily.  Only found one Rudbeckia, but got 10 ea of Heuchera
Palace Purple, Veronica Blue Bouquet, English Lavender, and Sedum Autumn
Joy.   Also got a deal from Bluestone on Sedum kamtschaticum, Aquilegia
Winky Red & White, and Potentilla Monarch Velvet.  These plants will help
fill out the stuff I'm also dividing from my yard.
