Seeds Per Package: 50

Description: Black Eyed Susan's bloom just as Brown-Eyed Susan's are finishing up and flowering lasts into well into the fall. Black-Eyed Susan's are short lived perennials that will re-seed themselves around but in the foothills this late flowering means the seed may not have the time to mature before winter hits and so they may eventually die out. This wildflower was introduced to Alberta and has naturalized itself but it is a plant of the eastern and central prairies.

Found in Nature: Open, moderately dry sites and disturbed areas.

Distribution: Plains to Montane

Notes: Available as larger potted stock - pick up only.
