Black-eyed Susan, Kentlands Photowalk, Gaithersburg, Maryland
I took this photograph in our Kentlands home garden. Black-eyed Susan is one of my favorite plants and these flowers add a lot of color to many gardens in our community. They require little care and bloom every year.
Maryland State Flower. The Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta) has been the official Maryland flower since 1918 when it was designated the "Floral Emblem" of Maryland by the General Assembly (Chapter 458, Acts of 1918; Code State Government Article, sec. 13-305).
