Mini Black-Eyed Susan is a classic herbaceous perennial that grows in all types of environments, from partial shade to full sun. Thriving best, however, as full sun flowers, the black eyed susan plant shines like pure gold in the summer garden where it blooms through the first fall frost. People who love butterflies, bird and bees will love the Mini Black-Eyed Susan, as it attracts them to gardens and yards. The compact version of the back eyed susan plant fits great in small spaces and as a border plant. The plant prefers well-drained, moderately fertile soil and reaches heights of around two feet. Plant spread is 14-to-16 inches, so space accordingly. Known botanically as Rudbeckia fulgida var. sullivantii "Little Goldstar", Mini Black-Eyed Susan should be set in the same soil height as in its container. Plant it firmly in the ground with plenty of water. Be sure to remove dying blooms to encourage sturdy new bloom to grow. The daisy-like flowers bloom two or two-and-a-half inches across with magnificent golden-yellow colors set in almost fully black centers. Foliage is coarse, dark green with three-to-six inch long leaves. Those planting this herbaceous perennial like to couple it with the likes of big red hardy hibiscus, super aster and sedum carpet. This full sun flower looks great with others in cut-flower arrangements, or across garden borders.
