It’s called a Brown Eyed Susan (rudbeckia triloba), but the name seems to overlook this flower’s other, more prominently colorful features. Photographed in Central Park’s Conservatory Gardens, New York City, September 20, 2014. Higher resolution versions of this photo can be viewed at 500px.com.
Stunning! I’ve never seen a flower like that!
Thank you, John! The Conservatory Garden is wonderful—filled with all manner of beautiful flora.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen one of these, Kenn, and what a gorgeous flower it is!
I really love the texture in the petals.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
Thank you, Lisa. If you’ve not yet seen the Conservatory Gardens, treat yourself to a visit if and when you’re next in NYC. Lots of interesting flora. And a wonderful weekend to you, too!
Bright and cheerful! You’re right that the name doesn’t suit its color…!
Thank you, Christy—perhaps the brightness of the petals blinded the naming committee.
Oh, Kenn! I just LOVE this flower!! Great shot! Love, Amy
