This Black Eyed Susan caught my eye because of the brown and orange color on part of the petal which was different than the normal flower color of just the golden yellow petal. The Black-Eyed Susan is probably the most common of all American wildflowers. A stiff, upright annual or short lived perennial native to the eastern United States, but has become endemic throughout North America The characteristic brown, domed center is surrounded by bright yellow ray florets. They thrive in most soils in full sun. Other common names for this plant include: brown-eyed Susan,brown Betty, gloriosa daisy, golden Jerusalem, Poorland daisy, yellow daisy, and yellow ox-eye daisy. It is an upright annual (sometimes biennial or perennial) growing 30�100 cm (12�39 in) tall by 30�45 cm (12�18 in) wide. It has alternate, mostly basal leaves 10�18 cm long, covered by coarse hair, with stout branching stems and daisy-like, composite flowers appearing in late summer and early autumn. In the species, the flowers are up to 10 cm (4 in) in diameter, with yellow ray-florets circling conspicuous brown or black, dome-shaped disc-florets. However, extensive breeding has produced a range of sizes and colors, including oranges, reds and browns. The black-eyed Susan was designated the state flower of Maryland in 1918.
