Sunrise Surprise is entirely new, but the soft, antique colors look like something you might find in an old photograph of great-grandmother’s garden! Sunrise Surprise takes the ever-popular, pure American Black-Eyed Susan Vine to new heights with glorious shades of rose, salmon, apricot, and ivory, all overlaid with a vintage look! Just as easy to grow and bloom-happy as the original orange-yellow combo, Sunrise Surprise 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 it just right — rose, salmon, and apricot tones, all overlaid or smudged with ivory, plus a few creamy blooms with mere smidges of other colors! 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 3- to 8-foot-tall vine over a long early-summer-to-frost season.
If you like Sunrise Surprise, take a look at the other new addition to the Black-Eyed Susan Vine family — warm-hearted Blushing Susie, bursting with red and rosy tones! And don’t forget the classic yellow-gold variety, which has delighted gardeners and inspired artists for many generations!
Happiest in full sun and moist, well-drained soil, Sunrise Surprise 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.
