Black-Eyed Susan Vine Adds Vertical Garden Interest 

With a tiny yard, you maximize growth space. I installed a wood lattice trellis along my neighbor's board fence this spring to see flowers instead of a blank wall.  

I planted black-eyed Susan vine on the trellis after a friend suggested it. It started easily and quickly from seed, which I liked! 

Though unrelated, this vine has a similar color to native black-eyed Susans. The tropical African black-eyed Susan vine is a garden classic.  

Starting from seed is simple. Soak seeds overnight in warm water before planting for better germination. After frost, transplant seedlings outside.   

A trailing black-eyed Susan vine container can be enjoyed by northern gardeners by midsummer. It may climb a fence or trellis and be used as a groundcover.  

This vine may grow invasive, thus the University of Wisconsin Extension recommends against planting it in frost-free areas.  

The University of Wisconsin Extension advises that gardeners should use caution before planting this vine in frost-free areas, as it may become invasive. 

Blushing Susie, a sunset-colored variant, is another. After having success with the yellow and white seeds, I'm going to get some of them shortly.
