Description
Wildflower native purists may not want this “man-made” wildflower in their meadows, but most people do. Basic color and sandpapery leaves are identical to its parent, the black-eyed susan, but flowers are much larger, varied in form, and most important, this species is perennial, while black-eyed susan (R. hirta) is biennial, making its yearly bloom less dependable. A truly fabulous plant for meadow color. Also great for cutting.

      Comments about American Meadows Gloriosa Daisy Seeds - 1/4 LB:

      When we finished building our home in NC, 6 years ago, we had several acres of raw dirt what had been a meadow. I wanted to restore the area so I planted a misture of wildflowers and native grass seed. Every year we add several pounds of perinials. We find that some do well and others don't in our red clay,full sunlight,low rain area. The one that prosper are Blanket flowers, Daisy of all kind, Yarrow, Dianthus, Dames Rocket, baby's breath and black-eyes susan. so we keep adding to the known and experimenting with a new one like California poppys. Our meadow is now a wonderful mixture of flowers and grasses.

                  Prettey, hardy, dependable bloomers. The only complaint I may have is that they do tend to spread outside the desired area.

                                  After buying a home on 4 acres of clay and struggling to get my favorites to grow; I bought some Black-eyed Susan seeds and the results were impressive. They added such wonderful color to the landscapes and were even kind enough to come back! I will continue to plant the rest of the property in these lovely Susans!
