The black-eyed Susan vine is a twining perennial that is native to tropical eastern Africa, and it can also be found throughout other tropical locations. When grown in colder zones it is considered an annual and will bloom from summer to fall.
Vines have white or orange-yellow blossoms. This beautiful vine is attractive growing up a wall, trellis or arbor. It also looks beautiful cascading from hanging baskets, window boxes and container plantings.
Plant (or place your container containing this vine) the black-eyed Susan in an area that receives morning sun and afternoon shade. Use soil that is high in organic matter content.
Water regularly since this vine will not tolerate drought conditions. Mulching this plant will help to keep the moisture in during the heat of the day.
Fertilize once with a time-release fertilizer at the beginning of the growing season. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's directions on the fertilizer; this can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.
Trim the vine when necessary. Trimming will produce additional blooms.
