A perennial form of the native Black Eyed Susan, zones 3-8. From summer into early autumn, it bears daisy-like blossoms (to 6 inches across) with bi-color petals and brown centers. These biennials bloom the first year, so are often grown as annuals. Very easy to grow from seed, and will do well in nearly any soil. These attractive blooms grow on sturdy stems, and make long-lasting cut flowers. Will attract butterflies, and re-seed itself. The flowers are a staple in late summer bouquets.
