              • Large Areas

              Comments about American Meadows Black Eyed Susan Indian Summer - Plant:

              The flowers are large and golden, in late summer when many other plants are spent. It is a self-sowing annual, which means it comes back year after year, and will give you some new plants if you want them, but is not invasive. And the bloom time lasts for weeks.

              It is hardy even here in our Zone 4, Maine winters.

              This is one of my favorite plants ever.
