Add a pool of sunshine to the garden with a massed planting of black-eyed Susan. From midsummer, these tough native plants bloom their golden heads off in sun or light shade and mix well with other perennials, annuals, and shrubs. Tall varieties look especially appropriate among shrubs, which in turn provide support. Add black-eyed Susans to wildflower meadows or native plant gardens for a naturalized look. Average soil is sufficient for black-eyed Susans, but it should be able to hold moisture fairly well.
With slender arching grassy leaves and bottlebrush panicles of flower spikelets, fountaingrass brings a rustic grace to massed plantings of 'Goldsturm' black-eyed Susan. They enjoy similar conditions.Russian sage
In sunny gardens, the wandlike flower stems of lavender Russian sage play well against black-eyed Susans.Aster
In sunny places, Frikart's aster has 2- to 3-inch lavender-blue daisy flowers that combine well with black-eyed Susans.Coneflower
Blooming at the same time, purple coneflowers echo the size and shape of black-eyed Susans, but in a contrasting purplish pink, which looks attractive against yellow or gold.
