The National Garden Bureau chose to remind gardeners of the what an incredible garden performer Rudbeckia is by designating 2008 the Year of Rudbeckia. Rudbeckia, or Black-eyed Susan's, are so ubiquitous in gardens you would hardly think they'd need the recognition of being chosen plant of the year. But as with so many native wildflowers, Rudbeckia didn't really catch on in America until they were refined overseas. Thank goodness they're back and the choices are greater than ever. There's a rich array of yellows, golds, oranges, mohogany and russets. What hasn't changed with this rugged prairie flower is its ease of growing and its pest resistance. For a dependable, long season bloomer that brings a smile to faces, you can't go wrong with Rudbeckia.
