Highly susceptible to fungus, even in an open, breezy, sunny bed. After a glorious first flowering, all were lost soon after one was infected. Even so, the flowers were stunning and I will try again. Any advice?

The newest darling of my garden. Showy fully double flowers with the center opening with a fabulous chartreuse color! Easy to grow!

This particular variety of Rudbeckia is not doing well down here, I'm down to a single plant--doesn't seem to hold up to the heat and humidity as well as other varieties. I will not be including it in my garden in the future.
