I planted rudbeckia (black-eyed-susans) last summer. I like the color and the hardiness of them. Shortly after planting them I was told they will spread and take over. I didn’t think that would matter too much since I only planted 4 plants all together.
Well, let’s just say that within 1 year I now have lots of plants. Oops! Well, most are just coming up so I can always dig them out. But honestly I still like them and don’t mind that they are spreading so much.
They add so much color to my gardens and since there are so many flowers on each plant I love that I can pick a few stems off and make a nice table arrangement. If anyone would like some for their garden just let me know and I’ll dig some up for you!
