Here in southern Illinois you can find black eyed susans growing in fields. They are beautiful to me.
Black Eyed Susan have been here in North America for quite some time. Being a native wildflower it has become popular with home flower gardens. The Black Eyed Susan Plant comes in two varieties (1) bush and (2) vine. They come in glorious fall colors of yellow, orange, and gold. If you love flowers but don't have a lot of time to care for them then the Black Eyed Susan is for you.
Black Eyed Susan are grown from seed and if started early in the spring you may be lucky to get blooms the first season. Best to plant the seeds shallow in the soil as early in spring as possible or plant in fall to have flowers next year. The plant will grow tall with stems as tall as 2 to 3 feet tall. After the flowers are established they will be easy to care for. Resistant to insect and disease
