Description

Designated Perennial Plant of the Year for 1999, black-eyed Susan is an immensely popular staple of the perennial border. Starting in July and continuing until September, they put on a spectacular display of distinctly yellow 3-4-inch flowers surrounding a black cone atop stiff stems with dark green foliage. Plants flower best in full sun and moist soil and attract birds and butterflies.
