Black-Eyed Susan

Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta) is a sturdy, upright growing plant that produces a warm-toned daisy-like flowers all summer through to fall. Black-Eyed Susan's long and strong stems make them an excellent cut-flower. You can combine them with other sun loving flowers in the mid to back section of your garden, or use them in more out-of-the-way areas or in sites with poor soils. Black-Eyed Susan should be planted 1- 2 weeks prior to the last frost or can be sown indoors 4-6 weeks earlier. Firm the soil over the seeds and keep it moist. While Black-Eyed Susans will tolerate heat and some drought conditions they do best when watered. They should be fertilized when the first blooms open. To ensure re-seeding, allow some flowers to mature on the plants. Once they have dried out the seed pods will open an release their seeds. [TABLE=55]
