Black eyed Susans
Black eyed Susans are one of my favorite perennials to grow. Mine have just now started blooming; they brighten up the garden with their yellow flowers. Lately we haven't gotten much rain, but that doesn't bother Black eyed Susans! They grow well in drought conditions.
I have two types of Susans, one that has a dark center and one that is plain yellow. Both kinds grow equally well, but I like the plain yellow type best.
Black eyed Susans come back every year without fail and also grow bigger every year. Mine need to be divided because they are pushing my other plants out the way. They are a great choice for our hot Louisiana summers!
