* Make sure you purchase a variety of Rudbeckia fulgida (not Rudbeckia hirta) to ensure it is a perennial. Starting seeds indoors requires temperature control and is not recommended. Plant seeds or seedlings outdoors either after the last frost of the spring or 4-6 weeks before the first frost date in the fall.
