Sweet Black-eyed Susan is distinguished by its toothed lobed leaves and the mild anise scent of its yellow daisy flowers. Reaching about five feet high, it is an excellent back of the border or tall prairie plant. Native to prairies and savannas, it will thrive in most soils, but does best with lower fertilization. Beloved of pollinators, it is a larval host for silvery checkerspot butterflies and a handful of moths.
