The Black-eyed Susan,
sometimes thought of as a weed, sometimes as a wildflower and sometimes a garden flower, is Maryland's state flower. It tends to take over a flower garden, spreading very quickly, so it can be a great groundcover. It is drought resistant. Herbalists use it for various symptoms from sores and swellings to earaches. In cut flower vases it last about 5 days.
