Description

Rudbeckia laciniata, or Cutleaf Coneflower, is a perennial plant native to Michigan and the UP. It has a variety of common names, from the elegant Wild Golden Glow, more descriptive Cutleaf or Green-headed Coneflower, to endearing Outhouse Weed.  It can reach an impressive 7 feet in height, forming dense rhizomatic clusters with a tremendous show of yellow blooms all summer into fall, living up to the name of golden glow.

Cutleaf Coneflower is versatile.  It favors partial sun, with a few trees around, but does well in full sun with adequate moisture, and can even tolerate shade.  It prefers medium wet to medium soil.  Its natural habitat is moist soils in rich woodlands, thickets, near streams, ditches or other wet areas.  It grows well in average, medium, well-drained soil as well, though it may not reach as tall. A quart will include 1 individual plant.
