Purchase plants in the spring or start your own by sowing seeds directly into ground or into pots in the early spring or late fall. Seeds need light to germinate so don't cover them, but press them gently into the surface of the soil. Plants will self-seed and can be divided in the spring or fall.

Interesting Facts:

A wildflower native to North America, Rudbeckias are wonderful for attracting backyard birds, especially finches, chickadees, cardinals, sparrows and nuthatches.

Pennsylvania is beautiful no matter what time of year it is, especially near the mountains and farmlands. We were driving around with my Aunt's friends who were visiting from Georgia. We stopped a lot to take pictures of the beautiful Pennsylvania countryside.

These are blooming along my property line. This was an early morning picture with the sun somewhat low for lighting. I hope you can see the bee on the right central part of the picture.
