Rudbeckia is a genus of around 25 annual, biennial and perennial herbaceous plants in the sunflower family, Compositae. Members of this genus, commonly known as black-eyed Susans or coneflowers, are popular in cultivation for their long flowering time and distinctive blooms with backwards bending petals. Flowering occurs through late summer and into autumn and they produce showy, usually orange, red or yellow flowers with contrasting dark centres. This genus is native to North America and widely naturalised in many other places.
