To really help you best. We need to know where you live and your zone and temps. Thank You 😁
They like sun and heat. If your warm enough. Introduce to direct sun slowly. Or it will be burn city.
They do best if planted in ground.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

There are a lot of plants called Blackeyed Susans. The one I usually associate with the name is Rudbeckia hirta. We would have to see some photos to narrow it down, but Blackeyed Susans are outdoor plants and usually annuals.

BTW, Susiemartin6 lives in Somerset, England.

My guess would be Thunbergia alata, that's what I knew as black-eyed Susan when I lived there. If that's what it is, it can be perennial in zone 10 equivalent or warmer, which means it can take a very small amount of frost. It may be borderline outdoors in winter in Street, I'm not sure exactly what equivalent hardiness zone that is but Somerset can be quite mild. I haven't tried to overwinter one so have no experience with that.
