Black-eyed Susan

*We no longer grow this item, but feel free to peruse the information.

Black-Eyed Susan is a cheerful, vining, alternative to morning glories that grows quickly and easily in full sun. These vines are covered with large, heart-shaped leaves and blooms that can reach 2 inches across.  The 5 lobed, trumpet-like flowers range in color from light yellow to orange with a dark brownish-purple throat or “eye”.

Black-Eyed Susan is native to Africa, Madagascar and Asia. In warmer, more tropical climates it is a perennial and can reach 20 ft but in cooler climates it is considered an annual and will only reach half that size. Place these vines in full morning sun but make sure that they are protected from the hot afternoon sun. They prefer soil that drains well and is kept moist but not soggy. It is not recommended that they are pruned hard during the growing season but a light trim is acceptable.
