Diohio's Garden

Coneflower, Purple

Genus: Rudbeckia.

Species: Rudbeckia purpurea.

A little clump was given to my by a workmate back in 1998 and I now have patches of it in different areas of the yard. The butterflies absolutely LOVE it ! In the fall the goldfinches are all over it eating the seed.
