Your "Brown Eyed Susan" might be Rudbeckia subtomentosa, Sweet Coneflower. Normally they grow to be 5' tall but shorter 3' tall ones also occur.

Otherwise R. hirta, and R. fulgida are just about your only other possibilities.

pawprint Rudbeckia hirta

Hi milta! tytyty for getting me pointed in the correct ID direction. No it isn't R. subtomentosa, as the specimen I have does NOT have a 3 lobed leaf as shown on this page: Rudbeckia subtomentosa page What's Blooming Now 2013-rudbeckia-hirta.jpg

R. hirta What's Blooming Now 2013-rudbeckia-hirta-2-.jpgseems to fit the description best for my plant, as compared to this site: Rudbeckia hirta pageWhat's Blooming Now 2013-r.-hirta-long-petioles-base.jpg

I also checked out the R. fulgida, but do not think mine is that, as the specimen stems are quite fuzzy, and the description of the R. fulgida from this website is:Rudbeckia fulgida page "sparse antrorse strigose"

I think I found the correct ID on the white bloom plant: Lobelia spicata (Lam) http://www.missouriplants.com/Whitea...cata_page.html

Nice call on the Lobelia! Nice plant find too. Your Rudbeckia looks like hirta to me but don't quote me. They seed around a lot and they are usually annuals for me. Pretty early for them.

Finally the butterflyweed in the field is blooming, I'm happy for the butterflies now, especially all the fritillaries I've seen flying with seemingly nothing to eat. There's a lot of daisy fleabane blooming in the field now and probably a lot more things I'm not seeing so hopefully all's well.

Hi Linrose, nice butterflybush & daisy fleabane, I liked your other pictures posted 'blooming now', very interesting. I read about your engagement party on the other thread, I'm so glad it went so well for your family.

Thank you, Linrose. It's just a little bit of native plant magic, in my opinion.

I am finding this thread to be my favorite thread these days, when I'm able to drop in on WG. It's one of the first threads I click on upon my return!

Love your close-ups MILTA!

Some from today - Stiff coreopsis, ox eye sunflower, a volunteen Monarda that is probably a cross between M. fistulosa 'Claire Grace' and M. didyma 'Raspberry Wine' so I get to name it! It's super mildew resistant, has thick dark green leaves and that great purple color. Maybe I should patent it! Also purple coneflower is starting to bloom and Rattlesnake Master is forming buds. It's an interesting plant all season in my opinion.
