Plant Information

This new hybrid looks a lot like the famous Gloriosa Daisy which is usually grown from seed. (We have the seed in our Wildflower Seed Dept.) However, this perennial is longer-lived than the seed-sown type (The ones from seed rarely last more than a couple of seasons.) , and all the flowers with this plant will be the same--all with the attractive dark reddish center. (The seed sown Gloriosas range from solid gold to various bi-colors and even double forms.) These new hybrids, which grow to about three feet tall, make wonderful color for your summer garden.

        Comments about American Meadows Black Eyed Susan Sonora:

        I saw these plants in Hinckley, MN and have searched endlessly to find them for my garden. I can't wait to watch these beauties blossom. My "colors" are always (interior and exterior) in shades of fall and these will be gorgeous. Thanks for giving me a reason to think about summer.

              USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

              To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

              • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
              • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
