Black-Eyed Susans

They're the State flower of Maryland, but the grow really well in Virginia, too. Perennials, they can grow in some shade, which, in my yard, is a good thing. I like them because they'll bloom for several weeks here at the end of July, when most flowers are finished, providing color until the fall mums come in.

Wow, they're beautiful! Don't think I've seen them before, possibly we don't get them here in the UK. x

They are my favorite flower. I guess that's because I was born in Maryland. I carried them as my wedding bouquet, picked myself in the field across the road from my house.
