Looks Great

I ordered a couple of these a few years ago and let me tell you, they were awesome last year. They are starting to show some green now and I decided to dig up several of the new plants and put them in pots so I can share with my family. I sure love how well these spread to fill in an area.

Need to fill a bland bed fast? Black Eyed Susans are the right thing! We have a whole bed of them that is over 8 feet long with only a few plants! I'm excited to try purple coneflowers some day as well.

Reviewed By: mary (36048, ga)
I gave it a five star because the flower is beautiful. I would not recommend buying this from Gurneys, the flower I purchased never came up. I called and they said I could get a replacement. They said I could wait. I decided to wait until next year (before my year ran out) to order. 1 week before the time ran out I FAXED my order. They refused to accept it. They said it had to be mailed. By then it was to late. I feel cheated and lied to by this company.In my opinion there are alot better places to buy from.

grows well
Reviewed By: jlumpkin (conyers, ga)
Planted these black-eyed Susan Daisy's Late May/Early June.... just this week (Mid Sept) one out of the 3 plants has flowers showing. I think the one with the flowers is doing a little better than the others because its in full sun and the other 2 have full sun 1/2 of day...
