Indian Summer is one gor- geous l'lmer even if it is an annual. The pl:mt reaches 42 inches in height and produces its heart out ith large, softball-size blooms. A mass planting of these combined with a mass of purple coneflowers will make vour border look like you are the gardener of the year. Their site and care is fairly standard. Also look for Prairie Sun. this year's All America Selections winner, with a primrose band around the petal tips. There are 30 to 40 other species of Rudbeckia native to the United States. One of my favorites is the Rudbeckia fulgi- de. The Goldsturm variety was a Louisiana Select Plant of the Year and a U.S. Perennial Plant of the Year. The flowers are not as large as Indian Summer, but they bk>om from May until the first hard frost and then return in the spring. The leaves are fairly large, oval and dark green. Keep welt watered during droughts. and remove dead flower heads for maximum bloom. Most years, gardeners are rewarded with more flower stalks being produced in late summer or early fall. I occasionally run across a gar- dener who thinks these are too aggressive and vigorous, but I feel passionately that these are among the best plants tbr any gardener -- beginner or expert. Rudbeckia fulgida are great planted along sunny borders. I have combined them with the Biloxi Blue and the violet Tapien verbenas. They also work well with asters, goldenrods, homestead purple verbena, and liatns or gay feather.
