Plant Features

The Henry Eilers Rudbeckia Plant is distinctly different with true yellow flowers bearing striking quilled petals surrounding a dark brown eye. This Black-Eyed Susan will add variety and interest wherever it is planted. We can thank a retired nurseryman, the namesake for this cultivar, for exploring rail remnants in southern Illinois, rail remnants being the only areas of unplowed prairie, a leftover from the 1800s. Without his wandering nature, we may never have been able to enjoy this wonderful Black-Eyed Susan!
