Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
When quick color is needed, and a planter doesn’t want to wait for the longer-to-bloom regular black-eyed susan (R. hirta), this species can be substituted. Not as beautiful as the real thing, but a black-eyed susan just the same.

*recently reclassified as Dracopis amplexicaulis.
