This is a good plant for native bees.
Also known as Rudbeckia columnaris, flowers can range from yellow to a reddish brown In my garden I will be testing this as replacement for the non-native cosmos that reliably reseed and put on a beautiful show from late July to October. The cosmos’ foliage is denser than this rudbeckia so it may need companion grasses. The one concern is the reddish morphing. I want a true yellow if I can pick one out.
