ANSWER? Black-Eyed Susans! Black Eyed Susans are very easy to grow. They like full sun, 6 or more hours per day. They don’t need to be pruned or fertilized. In the Spring, just remove dead foliage/leaves. Due to their bright yellow leaves and dark brown seedheads, they are very showy plants. They attract attention! They also attract butterflies! Birds like their seedheads, so you will see our feathered friends nibbling off of the seedheads.
