Black Eyed Susan Flower, Maryland State Flower, Purple Background, Yellow Flowers, US State Flowers

Designed by: Erica Catherine Illustration

Apart of Erica Catherine's US State Flower Collection, the Black Eyed Susan flower represents the State of Maryland. The yellow flowers are shown on top of a purple color background.  Each piece is first hand drawn by Erica Catherine using graphite and watercolor to create a vintage inspired feeling.

The Black Eyed Susan was adopted as the state flower of Maryland in 1918. The flower showcases the same colors chosen for the state flag. It also has 13 petals and helps represent the 13 original colonies that the state was a part of. The black eyed susan is a dasiy like wildflower, that is common in fields and by roadsides. They can reach up to 2 - 3 feet tall and bloom between May and August. The scientific name for the flower is Rudbeckia hirta. Hirta meaning "rough hairy" in Latin referring to center of the flowers. The roots of the black eyed susan are used in traditional remedies for colds. The bright yellow flower of the Black Eyed Susan often symbolize encouragement and adaptability. This comes from the determination to survive and bloom where they are planted.

Inspired by the natural and antique details that call to Erica's Old soul, she aims to bring that special spirit to all of her designs. Each drawing is created by hand using a mixture of graphite drawing with watercolor layering over the top to create the ethereal and vintage inspired work that harks back to turn of the century botanical illustration.
