Kingsdene Nursery & Garden Center Best of Baltimore 2022

This charming gem of a nursery is in all ways the opposite of a big box shop. For starters, they grow much of their own stock. Small in size, Kingsdene is prized by serious plantspeople, particularly for its selection of trees and shrubs. A small business that distinguishes itself through exceptional customer service, it’s not uncommon for staffers to forage in a dense sea of plants to find the best-looking specimen for their customers. They also stand behind their plants, offering a one-year warranty on many trees and shrubs.

Black-Eyed Susans and Perennials Available in the Nursery

The Black-Eyed Susans are absolutely stunning this year! This is ‘American Gold Rush’ Black Eyed Susan and makes a fantastic addition to a pollinator garden, wildflower meadow, or mixed border. ‘American Gold Rush’ gives all the rich color of classic Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia), with none of the disease issues. This hybrid is specifically bred to be resistant to Septoria leaf spot. ‘American Gold Rush’ is more compact, with foliage that is slightly narrower than the well-known ‘Goldsturm’. This is a low-maintenance perennial with blooms that will last for several weeks. Happiest planted in full sun, and they prefer an evenly moist soil, but not soggy.
Available in perennials. 🙂
