Stunning climber! Black-Eyed Susan's flowers with a striking center eye seem to gaze on the rest of the garden. Shades of yellow, cream, and white brighten your fence or trellis. Try it in hanging baskets and window boxes.

How To Grow Soak seed overnight in room temperature water then sow seeds in Jiffy 7’s - keep at 24 C (75 F) for the 14 day germination period. Grow on under lights at a cooler temperature of 20 C (70 F) before hardening off and transplanting outside after all danger of frost has passed. Seed can also be directly sown outside in late May after first soaking in a wet paper towel for several days. Self twining vines can grow to 2 m (6') in height. A few hours of afternoon shade is very beneficial in hot summer areas. Keep evenly watered and feed with a water soluble 20-20-20 or 15-30-15 throughout the summer.
