(Rudbeckia hirta) Perennial. Native. The cheerful yellow blooms of Black Eyed Susan are a must-have in any wildflower, native, or butterfly garden. Large daisy-like flowers bloom over a long period of at least 8 weeks in summer.

Easy to grow and thrives in most soils. Trouble free, very tolerant of heat and drought. Blooms well in full sun or light shade. A butterfly favorite!

Planting Instructions:
Sow outside 2-4 weeks before average last frost or as late as 2 months before first fall frost. Start inside 6-8 weeks before average last frost.

Additional Tips:
Black-Eyed Susan is a short-lived perennial that may come back for a second or third year, but is often treated as an annual. It does re-seed itself freely, however, which helps to fill in naturalized areas and wildflower meadows.

Seed Saving:
The seeds of Rudbeckia are called nutlets and develop on the center of the flower after the petals fall. Nutlets mature about 3-4 weeks after flowering and will be about 1/8” long and gray. To save seeds, cut the stems and shake the seed heads over a tray to release the seeds.

Companion Plants:
Plant with shasta daisies, phlox, lanceleaf coreopsis, butterfly milkweed, gaillardia, Russian sage, stonecrop, and ox-eye daisy.
