The big, bright daisy flowers of Rudbeckia hirta appear in sunset hues and are at their best in autumn. There are many different varieties of rudbeckias, single and double, tall and dwarf, but all share the characteristic of having a prominent cone-like centre to the flower, earning the alternative common name of black-eyed Susan, shared with thunbergia. 'Irish Eyes' is a beautiful variety which has bright yellow rays and green centres. Although it is a short-lived perennial 'Irish Eyes' is often grown as a half hardy annual. Sow the seed under glass in spring and plant plants in late spring, or early summer.
