Comprehensive Description

Read full entry


Sweet Coneflower is longer-lived than either Rudbeckia hirta (Black-Eyed Susan) or Rudbeckia triloba (Brown-Eyed Susan). It can be distinguished from these species by the soft fuzzy texture of the leaves and the shiny appearance of the central cone in the flowerhead. It is taller than Black-Eyed Susan and has larger flowers than Brown-Eyed Susan. At favorable locations, Sweet Coneflower has attractive foliage and flowers, otherwise it will appear rather dilapidated. Return
