All photos as of 7-24-11 080I 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.

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!
