Adds color to late summer landscapes! Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta) grows 2- to 3-feet tall and yields attractive daisy-like, yellow-orange flowers on velvety foliage. A true workhorse, each plant will produce hundreds of blossoms late into the season. Perfect for xeric (water conserving) gardens, native landscapes, mixed beds and borders. (Self-seeding biennial)
Each packet contains approximately 250 seeds.
Planting and Growing Tips:
Hardy plants are not fussy and will tolerate almost any garden site and most soils. Sow outdoors 1/8 inch deep when a light frost is still possible. Space 8- to 12-inches apart and mulch to prevent weeds and conserve moisture.
Almost anything from the Rudbeckia family will give you blossoms late in the summer, especially if you trim them back after an early season bloom. Plants should be cut to the ground in late fall after flowers have gone to seed.
