I love black-eyed susans and this is one of my favorites. It is doing very well here. Winter here was extremely rainy and I thought they were going to rot but they didn't. They color is beautiful.

A big puffy flower. Some had more layers of petals with a closed eye that I preferred better, and some had less layers and open black eyes. Fair amount of leaves per flower if you are counting.
