The ones with the furry leaves are usually forms or varieties of Rudbeckia hirta (which isn't actually a very long lived plant).

Conversely, the species Rudbeckia fulvida (which is stoloniferous) has given rise to the excellent German selection called 'Goldsturm' and lives indefinitely as it creeps outwards renewing itself.
