Black-eyed Susan, Rudbeckia hirta


Black-eyed Susan is a biennial/short-lived perennial yellow flower that boasts prolific blossoms from June through October. When used in seed mixes it is one of the very first flowers to bloom. Since many native perennials can take a year or two before blooming, Black-eyed Susans are a nice addition to a new planting. They regularly bloom in pots while still in the greenhouse!
