Black-Eyed Susan

Black-Eyed Susan

Black-Eyed Susans have a wildflower feel-- but you can depend on modern cultivars to return (in growing numbers!) every year.

Why We Love Them

These butterfly-friendly flowers fill up garden beds and look charming mixed in to casual summer bouquets.


Give this North American native full sun and you can plant it just about anywhere.

A New Contender

Favored by Native American tribes as a healing plant, Black-Eyed Susans may strengthen the immune system more than long-time favorite echinacea.

Off To The Races

The Preakness is nicknamed "The Run For The Black-Eyed Susans", but the winning horse is actually draped with viking poms meant to resemble the namesake flower, which doesn't bloom until later in the year.
