The Black Eyed Susan, also known as Hairy Coneflower blooms from late June through August. The characteristic brown, domed center is surrounded by bright yellow ray florets. The leaves are hairy, oval to lance-shaped with stems which are too scratchy to touch. It thrives in most soils in full sun, is quite adaptable and can hold up to some neglect. Average height of the yellow flower is 12 - 36 inches. Black Eyed Susan is used mainly for landscape beautification however it has potential use for cultivated, garden situations, or in naturalized prairie or meadow plantings. Seed may be planted almost any time during the growing season, but late Summer planting (August - September) often produces the largest stands.
