Black-eyed Susan is a  free flowering climber producing orange, yellow and white blooms.

Highly attractive and a pleasure to watch come into bloom, sowing is ideal between March and May with blooms arriving from July through to September. It can climb and trail to 120cm, making a fantastic natural display. Sow seeds in a propagator or on a windowsill in good quality, moist compost before transplanting seedlings into pots or tays. Finally acclimatise your plants gradually before planting into containers in a sunny, well sheltered position, taking care to support climbing stems which can trail to 120cm.
