Black-eyed Susan: A Charming Flower by Any Name

Posted on: June 15th, 2018

Black-eyed Susan

Black-eyed Susan, the colorful, charming North American native flower, is perfectly at home planted in a flower garden or growing wild in a pasture.

Black-eyed Susan

Rudbeckia hirta (scientific classification) has been associated with a number of common names including black-eyed Susan, brown-eyed Susan, brown betty, gloriosa daisy, golden Jerusalem, yellow daisy, and yellow ox-eye daisy.

Bird & Crawford CEO Mike Bird captured this spring inspiring field carpeted with the bright yellow blooms during an inspection of a conservation bank in Oklahoma following a prescribed burn. The property is under the care of Bird & Crawford Forestry and Advanced Ecology for preserving habitat and endangered species.
