You’d blush too if you knew you’d just transformed the American landscape! The ever-popular Black-Eyed Susan Vine has a new glow, with masses of cheery flowers in every shade of red, plus pink, salmon, and even the occasional apricot or ivory!
Just as easy to grow and bloom-happy as the original orange-yellow combo, Blushing Susie is a colorful joy that you’ll want for all your patio containers, trellises, the annual border, and anywhere else you want a splash of bold color!
This color blend is absolutely new to the Black-Eyed Susan Vine family, and it’s taken many years to get the mix just right — lots of reds, with variations from pink to peach, plus a few whites thrown in for contrast! You’d expect such a range of colors in a mix, but here you get an entire “mix” on every plant! The blooms are a good size, held wide open and measuring about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inches across. They are VERY profuse, simply covering this compact vine over a long early-summer-to-frost season. Talk about long-blooming — Blushing Susie keeps you in color for up to 6 months!
Happiest in full sun and moist, well-drained soil, Blushing Susie should be sown directly into the soil or container in which she will be grown. Plant the seeds when the soil warms in spring, and in no time you’ll be training up this vigorous little vine and enjoying its big bounty of rosy color! Pkt is 10 seeds.
