It is a good idea to soak any bare-root perennials in water for a few hours, but not more then a day, before planting. Add organic matter to the area and provide good drainage unless the plant variety enjoys wet roots. Unless otherwise specified, bare-root perennials are usually planted with the crown (where the shoots meet the roots) an inch below the soil surface. Firm soil gently to eliminate air pockets and water in well. Mark the area clearly since it may be awhile before the plant shows itself.
Once established, Black-eyed Susies form large, dense clumps that will tolerate considerable drought. Plant 2 ft. apart in full sun to part shade in ordinary soil so tops of plants are level with the surface.
Deadheading spent blooms encourages a longer blooming season. Plants are easily divided in spring when they become crowded.
