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.

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.
