Black Eyed Susan

Black Eyed Susan are native to Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin. Many times you will see them growing in fields. They desire full sun and soil likeness can go from dry to moist. The beautiful bloom will appear around June and go away in the early fall.

The Black Eyed Susan goes by other common names as well. Names such as brown eyed susan, brown betty, golden Jerusalem, English bull's eye, poor land daisy, yellow daisy and yellow ox eye daisy.

This flower grows natural in Illinois where I live and is also the state flower of Maryland. Native Americans used the black Susan for medicinal herb to remedy colds, flu, infections, swelling and snake bite. Parts of the flower can be eaten as well.
