FEATURED in WILDFLOWERS OF NORTH AMERICA

All of the approximately 30 species of Rudbeckias are North American natives, making the Black-Eyed Susan a decidedly American (and Canadian) wildflower.

The Romance of the Black-Eyed Susan: Ever wonder about one of America’s favorite wildflowers? Who was Black-Eyed Susan? Her story is one of the grand romantic tales of the wildflowers. And beyond legend, her name graces several of our most important and popular wildflower species. (By the way, the flower’s eye, or center, is not really black; it’s dark brown, but that’s not important.)

Who was she? Well, no one’s sure, but the legend says it all comes from an Old English poem of the post-Elizabethan era entitled simply, “Black-Eyed Susan,” written by a very famous poet of the day named John Gay, 1685-1732
