Description

This summer-blooming annual vine was introduced to Britain from India in 1823.  Black-eyed Susan Vine is included in a charming book, The Parlor Garden, which Thomas Jefferson's granddaughter, Cornelia Jefferson Randolph, edited and translated from French into English (1861); she noted, "it becomes covered with charming flowers, of a fine nankeen yellow, set off with a black spot in the middle."

Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last spring frost at 70 degrees F.  Transplant to individual pots, then harden off and plant outdoors after the last frost.  Prefers morning sun and afternoon shade and does not like intense heat; can be grown in planters and hanging baskets.  Approximately 14 seeds per packet.
