As a member of the Asteraceae (aster) family, the “Black-eyed Susan” gets its name from the dark purple-brown centers of its Daisy-like inflorescence.

Black-eyed Susan flowers are available in orange-yellow, gold, red, and bronze and bloom from June through October. There are more than 40 different species[1] of black-eyed Susans. However, be aware that they can be territorial, as they tend to crowd out other flowers growing close to them.
