Black-Eyed Susan is an annual that prefers rich, well-drained soil, but will tolerate average soils. Choose a site with full sun to partial shade.
Seeds need a period of cold, moist conditions for optimal germination. Direct sow outdoors in fall or stratify seed in a refrigerator for 3-4 weeks before sowing in the spring. Sow seeds on the soil surface and press lightly to settle. Seeds will sprout in 5-21 days. Thin seedlings so that mature plants are 12-18" apart.
Keep adequately moist for the first year of growth until plants become well established. Heat and drought tolerant once established.
Black-Eyed Susan is a prolific bloomer and cut flowers can be harvested from summer-fall.
Black-Eyed Susan is a self-seeding annual whose seed matures in late summer/fall. Seed is ready to harvest when dry and brown. Store seeds in a cool, dry place. Seeds are viable for 2-3 years.
