The giant, bold-textured Rudbeckia auriculata is endemic to a small region in southeastern Alabama and adjacent Florida and Georgia. Our plants are asexually propagated from plants we received from the Atlanta Botanic Garden, originally from a population in Webster County, Georgia.

Rudbeckia auriculata grows alongside pitcher plants in moist, sunny sites, but can also be found in alkaline seeps. It  produces 8′ tall, joe pye weed-like stalks that branch toward the top. The branches are then topped with clusters of 2-3″ golden orange flowers in August and September.

Host plant for the Silvery Checkerspot Butterfly.  Deer Resistant!!
