For years I would have agreed that black-eyed susans were varmint-proof, but no longer. It appears our local rabbits have developed a taste for them--sheared them off right about rabbit-head level. I couldn't believe it at first and like a fool put in a replacement. Next day, same thing--sheared right off. And my family wonders why, when I see rabbits, I think what a tasty dinner they would make!

Black-eyed susans are weeds to me. They have pretty blooms but come up everywhere a seed drops. They're in the grass, in the rose beds, everywhere. I've decided to do away with them completely.

I agree, rabbits seem to like brown eyed susan plants. whether that extends to cone flowers I do not know yet.
