Black eyed Susan


 Hi - I bought this in the spring as an interesting small climber that gives colour all summer long - there is no other instruction.   The description so far has been spot on and I love this plant for its colour and tenacity - I don't know much else about it though... will it survive the winter?  How can I help...?  Answers gratefully recieved please, I love this plant!

    Don't think it's hardy here GM- mostly grown as an annual but I'm not 100% sure image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I agree with fairygirl.  Half hardy annual. It wont survive a frost.  easily raised from seed sown in a propagator im March.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
  • Not hardy at all bless it. Seeds are pretty cheap to regrow next year tho
