Black-Eyed Susan is an iconic wildflower that is common in the eastern and Midwestern U.S. Flowers are bright golden yellow with a distinctive dark center, making them easy to spot in meadows and fields. Also known as Gloriosa daisy. Drought tolerant & self-seeding, these flowers attract honey bees and wild bees alike. In warmer climates, Black-Eyed Susan acts as an annual, while in cooler climates it acts as a perennial. In zones 7-10, it can be fall planted. This flower is a late summer bloomer, typically coming into bloom between the end of July and the end of August . The flowers are long lasting and make great cut flowers for arrangements. 250mg ~ 500 seeds.

Start seed indoors 5-7 weeks before transplanting into the garden. Cover with soil very lightly as seeds require light to germinate. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 60-75 degrees. Transplant to the garden after your average last frost date. A week before transplanting time, harden off plants by exposing them to an increasing number of hours outdoors each day. Or, plant seeds directly in the garden 2 weeks prior to average last frost date. Black-Eyed Susan self-sows readily. Prefers full sun but can tolerate partial shade.
