The Q&A Archives: bladk eyed susan vine

Question: Hi, I think most of my ? got deleted. My black eyed susan vine is growing but not blooming. Gets morn sun, in good garden soil, ample watering. Am I just impatient or do you think there's a problem with blooming? It's in north central KY.

Answer: I think your plant is just waiting for warmer summer weather. Black Eyed Susan grows best in full sunshine but in Kentucky will probably appreciate some shade from hot afternoon sun. Hold off on fertilizer and water when the top of the soil becomes dry. As soon as it matures and gets the warmth it needs, it should flower abundantly. Enjoy!
