We are Planting for Creation Care Sunday

Creation Care Sunday is coming, and the Sunday School is excited!


On April 21st, the Sunday School will plant Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta) to celebrate Creation Care Sunday. Black-Eyed Susan are short-lived perennials that bloom from early summer to fall, providing a vibrant pop of color in the garden. They are known for their distinctive golden-yellow petals surrounding a dark brown center.


Black-eyed Susan is a beautiful choice to plant for Creation Care Sunday. As the state flower of Maryland, these native plants are attractive and serve an important ecological role by attracting pollinators like butterflies and bees.

These hardy, low-maintenance plants thrive in full sun and well-drained soil, making them an excellent choice for gardens and landscaping. The Black-eyed Susan are also deer-resistant and can spread through self-seeding, allowing them to naturalize in various settings.


By planting Black-Eyed Susan, the Sunday School will contribute to the local ecosystem and support pollinators that are essential for the health of our environment. This is a beautiful way to celebrate Creation Care Sunday and promote sustainable gardening practices.  To learn more about the benefits of planting native plants, contact Sharee Wharton
