    I meant to order another plant, but I ordered this one. I am still pleased with the way it turned out though. It still looks good in my home, but I wish I had ordered what I wanted.

Black-Eyed Susan, Rudbeckia Hirta is a Beautiful Blooming Flower


Black-Eyed Susan might be mistaken for sunflower or a daisy. A closer look shows the pretty, yellow eyelashes frame a soulful brown eye with purple highlights in its midst. She’s in a class of her own. Sometimes called brown betty or poor-land daisy, the plant is famous for its glorious, golden beauty and attracting a bevy of bees and butterflies to her abundant nectar.

Black-Eyed Susan, Rudbeckia Hirta Attract a Bevy of Bees and Butterflies with its Abundant Nectar

The edible parts of the plant are used in poultices and as a folk remedy for viral illnesses (colds, flu). Its Latin name is Rudbeckia hirta after the Swedish family Rudbecks and is at least three centuries old. Its photographic likeness is the famous Tiffany lamp, and the live flower is used for prestigious ceremonial decoration. Black-Eyed Susans grow up to 3 feet tall and bloom up to 18″ in diameter. Although usually found in a sunny open field, the plant can flourish in low light. Plant the seeds under loose, well-drained soil from March to May and expect a new growth by mid-year to September. Keep the ground moist.
