Rudbeckia plants, or “Coneflowers”, make great houseplants or summer patio plants and will flower on and on with a bit of care.

Rudbeckia originates in South Africa and likes a nice sunny spot. Indoors, keep your plant near a window or in a porch where there is plenty of light. They will be fine in a window box or on a patio in the summer but bring them in when the night time temperature is likely to dip below 8C.

While your plant is in a small pot indoors they will need watering generously. Aim to keep the soil moist and your Rudbeckia will appreciate some liquid feed in their water every week or so whilst flowering. Any ordinary houseplant food will do fine.

Pick off dead flowers and leaves to encourage growth and keep the plants looking good. Rudbeckia is normally treated as an annual in this country and is expected to die off in the winter months. Keeping them indoors will prolong their flowering season a bit longer and with a bit of coddling in a greenhouse you might even be able to get them through the winter for a repeat show next year.

Problem solving

Rudbeckia are pretty tough plants, and will recover from most neglect with water, light and food. Over the winter they should be cut back and allowed to rest completely ready for a repeat show next year.
