The Romance of the Black-Eyed Susan: Ever wonder about one of America’s favorite wildflowers? Who was Black-Eyed Susan? Legend says it all comes from an Old English poem of the post-Elizabethan era entitled simply, “Black-Eyed Susan,” written by John Gay, 1685-1732.

All in the downs, the fleet was moored,
Banners waving in the wind.
When Black-Eyed Susan came aboard,
and eyed the burly men.
“Tell me ye sailors, tell me true
Does my sweet William sail with you?”

This charming poem tells one of the great “Legends of Love” in our wildflowers, and every summer, it plays it out just as the poem describes.
Even though it’s not a native, if you seed wild Sweet William with common Black-Eyed Susan, they will bloom beautifully for you at exactly the same time. Her gold plus his bright red and purple blooming together is a sight to gladden any gardener’s heart. Since Susan is a North American native, this tale tells us that English colonists must have given the golden beauty her name when they arrived in the New World ~ ref: Ray Allen, American Meadows.com
