Black-Eyed Susan

The True Perennial—Back by Popular Demand

Striking color contrast! Layers of sunshine-bright copper-gold petals radiate out from a large, dark center. Blooms heavily from midsummer to frost; grows 2-3 ft. tall. A longtime favorite for cut bouquets. Spreads to fill an area fast. Easy to grow—tolerates a wide range of conditions but prefers full sun and well-drained soil.
This plant attracts butterflies.
