Orange Coneflower (Rudbeckia fulgida) is a wildflower very similar in appearance to Black-eyed Susan. This alternate-leaved wildflower grows 1-3 feet tall with flower heads from 1-3 inches across. It has 10-20 orange ray flowers and purple-brown disc flowers in the center. Orange Coneflower forms rhizomes to spread and grows in large clumps. It does well in most soils with the exception of soggy soil. It prefers full sun, but will tolerate partial shade. It blooms all summer long, and its long, sturdy stems are ideal for cutting, which encourages reblooming.
