From midsummer, these tough native plants bloom their golden heads off in sun or light shade and mix well with other perennials, annuals, and shrubs.
Do not let them Dry out. Divide perennial types every 3 to 4 years to ensure healthy plants and to prevent excessive spreading. Be sure to remove faded/dead flowers to prolong blooming. You can cut back black-eyed Susans after they flower and a second, smaller bloom may occur in late fall.
