Sorry, this product is sold out!

Brown-Eyed Susan is a cheerful biennial  or short-lived perennial that re-seeds easily. Birds enjoy the seeds and pollinators frequent the plants for nectar. It is also a host plant for Bordered Patch and Gorgone Checkerspot butterflies. The blooms last longer if protected from the hot afternoon sun. Brown-Eyed Susan prefers well-draining soil.

Brown-Eyed Susan fits in well in the meadow, wildflower and cottage gardens, perennial beds, micro-prairies, and naturalized areas.
