SWEET BLACK EYED SUSAN
Sweet Black-eyed Susan is an Illinois native found in prairies and open woodlands. This species is taller and more robust than other black-eyed Susans. Golden-yellow flowerheads have deep brown centers. These flowers are attractive to bees and butterflies. Bright green foliage turns yellow in the fall. Sweet Black-eyed Susan can tolerate drought and clay soils once established. It is a great choice for a native or butterfly garden, and looks great with Purple Coneflower.
