Perennial Black Eyed Susans can be planted in spring or late summer/early fall. When frost nips the tops of the plants, cut away the dead stems and foliage and then place some organic mulch over the top of the soil to help protect the roots during the winter months. Rake away the organic mulch in the spring and your plants should sprout when the weather warms. Enjoy!
