Rudbeckia hirta, commonly called black-eyed Susan, is a North American flowering plant in the family Asteraceae, native to Eastern and Central North America and naturalized in the Western part of the continent as well as in China.



The halo of yellow petals provides a target and landing pad for many pollinators. A close examination of the center "eye" reveals that it is actually hundreds of individual small flowers, each holding nectar sipped by bees, small wasps, flies, butterflies, and moths.

  • Plant black-eyed Susan flowers after the last winter frost, or plant in fall before the cold sets in. If planting from seed, sow the seeds six weeks before the last frost. Set plants 18 inches apart in soil that's been cleared of weeds and loosened for easy digging.
