Looking for the perfect filler flower to add a bit of sunshine to your late-season bouquets? Today, Lisa and Layne discuss Rudbeckia triloba, a beautiful species of black-eyed susan featuring airy sprays of cheerful yellow flowers. They cover what makes ‘Triloba’ so special, why it is valuable both in the landscape and in bouquets, how to plant in a cutting bed or establish a self-seeding patch in the garden, plant spacing, the typical bloom time and harvest window, the number of stems to expect per plant, the proper harvest stage, tips to prevent wilting, flowers to pair with ‘Triloba’, and more. Listen to the podcast and learn how to grow this delightful mid- to late-summer flower that is beloved by birds, beneficial insects, pollinators, and flower growers alike!
