Black-eyed Susans are a hardy little sibling in the sunflower family. They’re known by a variety of different names, such as brown-eyed susan, yellow ox-eye daisy, brown betty, golden Jerusalem, yellow daisy, poor-land daisy, gloriosa daisy, and English bull's eye. Several Native American tribes used black-eyed susan medicinally for centuries to treat snake bites, swelling, infection, colds, and the flu. They also ingested certain parts of the flower for nutritional purposes.
