this new 'early bird gold' variety black eyed susan is exact image of a classic old fashioned black eyed susan but has the most beautiful lush large dark deep healthy green leaves an foliage ive ever seen on a black eyed susan. everyone should get this new variety. it is extremely tolerent of the sun and the leaves stay dark green and healthy all summer where as the original old fashioned rudbeckia fulgida leaves are only medium green not as large and get pale limy looking and nitrogen depleted after a summer of watering and intense heat, these do not..beautiful plant and foliage. mike.
