|Hi, I ordered many different perennials this year and I thought to have planted a Black Eyed Susan plant. It grew fast and strong (almost 4 ft. tall) and now there are little white flowers growing in bunches on it...what could this be? We are so confused.

|I can't tell from your description - hundreds of perennials can have clusters of white flowers, but it might be Boltonia. Boltonias resemble asters, with narrow leaves and dozens of white flowers in clusters. A well-situated boltonia will be covered with bloom from late summer into fall.
