Green-Headed Coneflower

Rudbeckia laciniata

Description:

This relative of "Black-eyed Susan" can grow up to 12 feet tall, easily competing with other tall native wildflowers like Joe-pye Weed and Ironweed which bloom about the same time. As with those popular wildflowers, this one is also available in the nursery trade in a number of cultivars. This plant is also edible, with a traditional use as a cooked potherb early in the spring.
