Black Eyed Susan stunted growth

Zone 49686 | ttdhouse added on July 23, 2017 | Answered

My black eyed Susan's were eaten down by rabbits last year, before the stems grew. This year, I only have a couple inches of leaf growth and no stem. Since it is the end of July and they have usually stemmed by now, I wonder why their growth has been stunted.

Since your plants were eaten down before they grew out their life cycle, they may be stunted a bit this year.

Give them another season to recover.
