Henry Eilers Sweet Black Eyed Susan
No longer available this season.
Skinny, rolled petals are the hallmarks of 'Henry Eilers' Black Eyed Susan, bringing a defined starburst shape to the flowerhead - although they appear in the same shade of sunny yellow as their cousins and surround the same chocolate-purple center cones. Found growing in an Illinois railyard, this native prairie plant grows between 3 and 5 feet tall, producing flower after flower from mid summer until fall frosts. An important addition to the late-season pollinator garden. (Rudbeckia)
