It’s the big sister to the rudbeckia, also know as black Eyed Susan. It does not have such black eyes, but it is a member of the same family. I have a patch of them in my garden and they are the last to flower during the year. Now is their time to show what they have got.FOTD 27th February 2020: Rudbeckia Laciniata
It is actually the big brother of the normal sized coneflowers. I have a patch of them in my garden and they only flower in late September, even October.
I think these are the big sisters of black-eyed Susan. The are one of the last to flower i my garden at the end of September.
It is the big sister of the black-eyed Susan and I have a group of them in my garden. They grow quite high and are one of the last to flower during the year.
The big sister of the black eyed Susan. These are in my garden and grow to almost 2 meters tall.
They are the main attraction in my garden at the moment. More than 2 meters high, ther yellow flowers being seen from everywhere. We have a few gardens with this sort of black-eyed Susan. They are the big sister of the normal sized one. They are very late and only begin to flower half way through September, but you can watch them growing througout the year. Slowly the season for blossoms is coming to an end.
Here is the tall sister of the normal sized Black Eyed Susan again. This time I could reach its flower on tip toes. If the ant can do it, or whatever it is, so can I.
At last I discovered their name. I have searched for a few years. They were given to me by a colleague and he said they are the last to flower in the garden before Winter and he is right. They are another species of Rudbeckia (black eyed Susan) and are very tall, about 2 meters in height at least. They are perenniels, arriving every year regularly, and spread. I have to be careful that they do not pop up where I do not want them to, so many are cut back before the have a chance to grow. They appear already in Spring and grow continuously through the year, reaching their height in September when they begin to flower. This is the first flower of the year, but many will follow.
