This is suppose to be Rudbeckia x herta Cherry Brandy. Looks like it’s trying to be? I did google images of it grown by others and a few came out as such. I’ve not grown this before so am wondering if the petals continue to turn more burgundy. I grew it from seed and this is the first bloom from that bunch. I’ll keep you posted. It doesn’t look like the picture from Thompson and Morgan. But it does look like a few on the google internet images.
Since my seed packets got all mixed up in a storm, it’s hard to tell what is what except that it is a rudbeckia.
My Mexican Sunflowers are doing marvelously. Take a look at the Black swallowtail who decided to dine on her today. Botanical Interest Seeds
The swallowtails are just returning to my garden and just in time for the opening of most of my sunflowers.
