Orange Coneflower is a perennial native plant that forms dense bunches ranging from 2-4 feet and sport deep green foliage and sturdy stems that support deep yellow-orange flowers that bloom from midsummer all the way through fall. A good nectar source, Rudbeckia fulgida is frequently visited by butterflies and other pollinating insects. It is native to the eastern Midwest and will hold a wonderful place for pollinators as a mass planting. They make beautiful cut flowers as well.
