Do you want a Save the Bees pack? Link in comments below. It includes a Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta) seed pack and a 4" x 4" repositionable window cling. Black-Eyed Susans are native to the entire United States with the exception of Nevada, Arizona, Alaska, and Hawaii. However, it has been introduced to Alaska. In addition, it is also native to many areas within Canada. The window cling has a white background and applies to the outside of your window to make it easier to read. It can be repositioned up to 4 or 5 times.
