Missouri black-eyed Susan is a wildflower native to the Ozark region of Missouri where it spreads to form large colonies. It reaches 2 – 3 feet tall and produces yellow daisy-like flowers with black center disks with branched stems from June to September; the stems and the thin leaves are intensely hairy. The plants prefer full sun and rocky dry soil where they will attract bees, wasps, and flies; butterflies feed on its foliage. Though happy in the wild, it can also be grown in the home garden and does not spread aggressively.
