Flower of the Day:22.09.2016 Rudbeckia Laciniata

Rudbeckia Laciniata 21.09.2016
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.

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.
