Black Eyed Susan

| |


The Black Eyed Susan is a native to North America and one of the most popular cultivated wildflowers. Also known as rudbeckias, this daisy-like flower blooms from June to September, often covering open fields with its golden yellow beauty, surprising passersby.

Black-Eyed Susans are easy to create, naturalize well, and require little maintenance other than dying. Regular cutting back on faded blooms keeps plants in color for longer. You can let the season’s last flowers remain on the plants to form the seed heads that will feed to the birds through the winter. You’ll also get a great deal of self-seeding, which may not be wrong.
