Black-eyed Susan, Rudbeckia hirta

The Black-eyed Susan, Rudbeckia hirta, is one of North America’s most common flowers. It comes in four varieties and the image above is of the nominate subspecies, R. h. hirta found in the northeast. This was an unusually large clump of flowers from an abandoned field near Long Point, Ontario. I expect it was comfortable with the sandy soil found there.

It is also the source of a number of garden varieties of flowers, as it makes a nice long lasting display.
