    1. These, as far as I know, are wildflowers, but I think you can buy them for your garden. I’m pretty sure the seeds are for sale and they would probably grow well for you. They are a very northern plant. If they survive here, I’m pretty sure they’ll do fine for you, too.

  1. I never know about some flowers. These, in my book, are rudbeckias. The particular charm of them is that once the petals have fallen they still look stunning in any arrangement with just their brown heads – so sophisticated!

    1. I’m sure they are rudbeckias, but around here, these are wild. It doesn’t mean they might not have started at some point as garden flowers, but these days, you only see them in fields. Along the edges of fields, usually. With the daylilies.

      1. I envy you for that wonderful ‘accident’…. My daylilies this year were mostly missing from the scene; too little water (dispensed by your truly, but not enough, they said….) and the rudbeckias never wanted to grow in our soil. It’s a very good soil but not for everything.
