Rudbeckia amplexicaulis, commonly known as the Clasping Coneflower or the Swamp Sunflower, is a species of flowering plant in the Asteraceae family. Native to North America, particularly found in the southeastern United States, it typically grows in moist habitats such as wetlands, along stream banks, and in low-lying areas.

This perennial plant is characterized by its striking yellow daisy-like flowers with dark centers, which bloom in late summer to fall. The leaves are broadly lance-shaped and clasp the stem, giving rise to its common name "amplexicaulis," which means "stem-clasping." It can grow up to several feet in height and forms dense clumps.

Rudbeckia amplexicaulis is often cultivated in gardens for its attractive flowers, and it also serves as a valuable plant for pollinators, attracting bees, butterflies, and other insects. It's relatively low maintenance and can thrive in various soil conditions, as long as they are consistently moist. However, it may require staking in windy conditions due to its height. Hardy in zones 2-11.


Growing instructions for the Clasping Coneflower


The seeds can be sown on the ground in the spring or summer or they can be grown in pots at any time of the year. 1. Sow the seeds on the surface of the soil. 2. Lightly rake the seeds into the soil so that they are barely covered with the soil. The seeds need light to germinate. 3. Water the seeds and keep the soil moist until the seeds sprout. The seeds usually sprout in 3-4 weeks. The seeds can also be started in pots indoors and then transplanted when they have a few leaves.
