Plant Care Tips
Black-eyed Susan thrives in relatively dry, sunny locations. It also takes heat and humidity quite well. Even in less than ideal growing conditions (e.g. clay soil and partial shade), the plant produces gorgeously large, deep green leaves and quite a number of flowers, though it may be leggier. This plant spreads slowly and will fill in a bed very nicely. It also self-sows, but you can easily remove any unwanted seedlings. While you can remove the seedheads in early fall, deadheading isn’t necessary: the black seedheads look spectacular and are a source of food for birds in winter. If planted in a wet, part-shade location, slugs, earwigs and leaf spot may be problems.
