Hi! I am a Black Eyed Susan, a Coneflower that is easily spotted by my mass of beautiful gold daisy flowers, accented with a dark brown eye at the end of my stem. I am sure to be an eye catching and memorable focal point of your garden, and my bright and fun colour makes me excellent for cutting. My perfect home has lots of sun for me bask in all day, and I love to be chosen as your thriller plant in a spiller-thriller-filler- container combination. I am low maintenance, thrive in any type of soil, and am very tolerant of urban pollution - you can plant me right in the city! I am happiest, healthiest and most beautiful when I am grown in full sun, my soil is kept moist, and I am mass planted with lots of my friends.

  • Vibrant flowers: Black Eyed Susan is known for its showy, bright yellow or orange flowers with dark centres that resemble a black eye. The flowers are often compared to those of a daisy, and they bloom in mid to late summer, adding a burst of colour to any garden or landscape.
  • Drought tolerant: This plant is relatively low maintenance and can tolerate dry conditions, making it a great option for areas that receive little rainfall or have hot summers. Once established, it can survive with minimal watering.
  • Attracts pollinators: Black Eyed Susan is a popular choice among gardeners looking to attract pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. The flowers provide a good source of nectar and pollen, and the plant itself serves as a host for certain caterpillars.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Black Eyed Susan needs regular watering during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Once established, it can tolerate drought, but it is best to water it regularly during prolonged dry spells. Water the plant deeply once a week or whenever the soil is dry to the touch.
  • Maintenance: It is a low-maintenance plant and does not require much attention. Keep an eye out for pests and diseases, and remove any diseased or damaged foliage promptly.
  • Pruning: In-season pruning: Pinch back the tips of the plant when it reaches about 12 inches tall to encourage bushier growth and more blooms. End-of-season pruning: Cut back the plant to a few inches above the ground after the first frost in fall to tidy up the garden.
  • (Optional):Fertilizer: Black Eyed Susan does not require much fertilizer, but you can apply a balanced fertilizer once a month during the growing season to promote healthy growth and blooms.

Planting Instructions

Planting a trees or plants is easy! First, begin by digging a hole that's twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place the tree or plant in the hole and add some bonemeal fertilizer. Backfill with fresh soil if needed and water thoroughly. Water regularly until roots are established to keep the plant healthy. Enjoy your new tree or plant!
