Black eyed Susans (yellow flowers) at night. Washington Square Park. Greeenwich Village, New York City,
There is a dramatic quality to fragile petals illuminated by only the faint glow of a nearby street lamp. This particular photo is of a solitary Black Eyed Susan in Washington Square Park. I am quite fond of this particular patch of yellow flowers during the day but they are especially gorgeous late at night.
Rudbeckia hirta, the Black-eyed Susan, with the other common names of: Brown-eyed Susan, Blackiehead, Brown Betty,Yellow Daisy, and Yellow Ox-eye Daisy is a flowering plant in the family Asteraceae. It is an upright annual (sometimes biennial or perennial) native to most of North America, and is one of a number of plants with the common name Black-eyed Susan with flowers having dark purplish brown centers. Black-eyed Susans can be established, like most other wildflowers, simply by spreading seeds throughout a designated area. They are able to reseed themselves after the first season. Source
