We use The Black-eyed Susan clan in two ways in the garden here – to climb up silver birch or cane teepees and frames for summer into late autumn colour and scale — and to trail down the sides of our containers to soften and swathe the pot edge. I’ve been looking out for a soft gentle pink to add sparkle to our pots of white cosmos and pastel pelargoniums. This one excelled.
Plant out after risk of frosts. Water freely and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser once a month. Will require protection from frosts unless grown as an annual.
