Black Eyed Susan 3 For $12.99 Description

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

Black-Eyed Susan might be mistaken for a 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 for 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

Black Eyed Susan's 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 new growth by mid-year to September. Keep the ground moist.

Soil Requirements: Plant in well-drained soil. Any condition is acceptable if the ground has time to dry between watering.

Pruning: Deadhead faded or wilted flowers. If you want a shorter growth, cut the stem about 5 in. Down from the petals during the middle of their flowering season.

Flower Form: This type of coneflower has 8-20 yellow to orange petals that point downward and out from its high center. With brown to black cone centers, these summery flowers are held up by rigid, hairy green stems. Oval green leaves with prominent veins moderately cover the height of the stem, holding a single flower head. The leaves vary in size, are usually slender, and have tiny hairs. Their nectar and seeds attract birds, butterflies, bees, and other wildlife. They often take over areas where they begin to grow and are found in colonies, mainly when grown in the wild.


Black Eye Susan, Rudbeckia Hirta is For Sale at TN Wholesale Nursery with Low Prices and Fast Shipping

This perennial is a native plant of North America and one of the significant crop wildflowers. They frequently cover grassy areas, surprising passers-by with their golden-yellow beauty. The "black eye" is named after the dark, brown-purple hubs of its daisy-like blossoms, which are members of the aster family, Asteraceae. Because of the plant's adaptability and widespread availability, this plant is considered a symbol of encouragement and motivation.

The plants can grow to be over 3-4 feet tall. The flowers inspire butterflies, bees, and other insects with their sweetness. As they drink the sweetness, they transfer pollen from one plant to another, causing the plants to produce fruits and seeds freely scattered by the wind. For ideal seedling growth, tree black-eyed Susans when the surface temperature reaches 70°F. The planting season in many parts of North America runs from March to May. Germination takes between 7 and 30 days.

Plant seeds in well-drained, moist soil. The flowers of the plant adore the sun. They prefer full sun but will grow in partial shade as well. It is preferable if the land is fertile (rather than poor), but they can tolerate harsh conditions. These plants blossom from June to October. It's worth mentioning that they don't look like the other flowers in the area. Black-eyed Susans are excellent cut flowers but can also be used as borders or in containers.

Each perennial has a single flower top upwards on the terminal stem. The flower-top is beautiful just the way and quite large. The bloom is characterized by a prominent black or dark-brown woolly central cone surrounded by rich-yellow, long, ray-like, noticeably sequentially hairy petal-like rays. Rays emerge from the central cone's underside and droop slightly downward. The leaves of the black-eyed Susan are pretty long, ranging from 5 to 17.5 cm in length. They have thin pairs of leaflets shape. The leaves have winged leaves that are heavily luxuriant. The leaves are countless and grow irregularly along the length of the stalk.

This plant grows best in fields, plains, and open woods. This perennial is adamant and durable and can grow in any environment. It is known as an innovator plant because it is one of the first plants to grow in areas of destruction caused by fire and other natural disasters. The roots of these plants are helpful in medicine and can cure many illnesses. The liquid from the root system can treat ear infections naturally. Make a root beverage or injection and soak a cloth in it. Then, use it to treat minor cuts, sores, scrapes, or swelling. It is also beneficial to boost the immune system and defend against colds and the flu. It treats high blood pressure, increased urination, and lesions; earaches are relieved.

    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.
