Black-Eyed Susan

DSC_0192

Another native wildflower, the Black-Eyed Susan is a relative of the sunflower, and originated in eastern and central North America – though it now appears everywhere on the continent and in some places in China.  It was used by Native Americans in a variety of medicinal uses, and is the State Flower of Maryland.
