: My black-eyed susans were doing fine, but now all the flowers are turning brown and dying. They are getting new growths but they are also dying before they completely bloom. Have noticed leaves have holes as if something is eating them, but don't see anything. Help....I live in southwester PA.. Thanks. Kim

Your plants may be stressed due to the drought. Also, did you transplant them this year? That may also have something to do with it as their root systems may not be developed enough to support the growth. The blackening leaves sound like overwatering. The holes could be from Japanese beetles. They will recover from that. I would suggest that you cut them back.
