Oh...I tried to make BES fit Rudbeckia, never thought about Black Eyed Susan. Thanks! I need to plant some of those seem like they make tons of flowers and really brighten up the garden, I'll but they do great with Zinnias.

They are great re-seeders too. I haven't had to plant any for a couple of years but have had plenty for bouquets at market. My bouquets are heavy on BES and zinnias. Sometimes, if you have a couple different varieties they new seedlings will morph and be marked with stripes, or larger, stronger petals, things like that.
