About the Black-Eyed Susan plant, rudbeckia hirta

This beloved garden standard is known for its instantly recognizable halo of yellow petals, surrounding a dark brown center. It adds a sunshiny, striking accent to the landscape, especially when planted in groups of three or more.

Native to North America, this golden yellow flower is called by many names, including: Brown-Eyed Susan, Yellow Ox Eye, Gloriosa Daisy, Yellow Daisy, Brown Betty, and Golden Jerusalem. It is part of the aster family, the same group of plants that include daisies and sunflowers.

Black-Eyed Susans attract bees and butterflies, making them a favorite wildflower to grow in the home garden. They have a long bloom time, from early to mid-summer through the fall. Being native plants, they are drought tolerant.

Grow this perennial plant as a flowering border, along fences, or anywhere to add color. The plant grows between one to three feet tall and is deer-resistant.

Buy Black-Eyed Susan plants to add cheerful bursts of color during summer and fall to your home lawn or garden.
