Plant Features

Indian Summer Rudbeckia Plants produce gorgeous 6-9-inch-wide, single and semi-double blossoms in the perfect shade of orange that is so reminiscent of turning leaves and pumpkin patches. Its chocolate-colored eye is surrounded by gently overlapping petals that are most often delicately rolled along the edges, forming a cup that catches drops of moisture. Redbeckia grow best in full sun and well-drained soil. Deadheading to encourage prolific bloom, leaving some of the last seed heads to remain for winter food for seed eating wild birds. Black-eyed Susan plants attracts butterflies while deer avoid them!

Indian Summer Rudbeckia

I love Rudbeckia, they require little maintenance in the garden and usually reseed. These bloomed after a week of receiving.

From Angela | August 07, 2023


Plant is large with well-developed roots. Expertly shipped in packaging that is recyclable.

I still cant believe how fast this plant has grown. Didnt think it was going to flower this year and it gave me 6 big flowers very long lasting too. I just love it.

From Carin | July 30, 2022

Beautiful plant

The plant arrived healthy and has grown quickly. The first bloom opened this week and it’s a beauty.

No flowers yet

This plant did survive after the mailing in a heat wave here in southwest. We watered a lot and it looks good but no flowers yet

Perennial Favorite!

I love all types of Back-Eyed Susans, and try to add to my collection when I see different varieties. This arrived well-packaged and was very large. However, it seemed not to be quite as healthy as all the other plants I have received from GrowJoy. I am babying it along, and it seems to be doing fine. Interesting leaves. I can't wait for the blooms!

Indian Summer Rudbeckia Plant (Black-Eyed Susan)

Purchased these and are seeing some larger than expected blooms on the plants. Look great in my garden. Hope they will continue to flourish. Am a happy gardener.

Indian Summer Black Eyed Susan Rudbeckia

This plant arrived well packaged and growing strong! No blooms yet, but has good sized leaves. I look forward to seeing it grow and produce the large flower blooms it is known for. I am a repeat customer of GrowJoy - it is a pleasure doing business with them. Excellent customer service and shipping.

Indian Summer Rudbeckia Plant

I have one of these plants that I purchased from GrowJoy and decided to just buy another to enhance the color in another section of the garden. Beautiful when it blooms.

From Marilyn | May 29, 2014

My Favorite Rudbeckia!

Love 'Indian Summer' Rudbeckia! It's my favorite! Flowers are cheery looking and beautiful!

Best Rudbeckias

Gorgeous...that is what my neighbors say. These Rudbeckias are beautiful, grow quickly and come back after freezing with no drama. The only Rudbeckias I will now use in my garden (Gainesville, FL)

From anonymous | May 09, 2013

second time I've ordered these

These are the only Rudbeckias that seem to come back year after year. The others that I bought locally got that awful fungus so I had to get a few more from GrowJoy to replace them. The flowers are tall and strong and are very striking in the middle of my flower bed amongst the softer colors of my Daylilies and Agapanthus. I also love how GrowJoy holds shipping for the right time for my zone. Other nurseries I've purchased from just ship as soon as the plant is ready and I had to keep them in pots so I could move them in and out to protect from freeze damage until spring.
