Black-eyed Susans bloom along I-70 in Indianapolis

Native black-eyed Susans cover patches of I-70 with their golden orange flowers. For more info about these great plants and their role in the ecosystem, check out my blog at Keep Indianapolis Beautiful’s Website.

Here’s an excerpt:

Along I-70 from Indianapolis International Airport to downtown, the black-eyed Susans ‘Goldsturm’ have begun blooming again, revived by the recent soaking rains.

For several weeks before the rains though, these summer perennials look fried, if not dead. But even in their decrepit condition, the plants served a purpose beyond beauty.
