Rudbeckia to the max

Swamp Coneflower Flower Head 8764

Yet another thing I saw on the grounds of the Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville, Arkansas, on June 20 was Rudbeckia maxima, known as giant coneflower, great coneflower, and large or giant brown-eyed susan. In contrast to the regular brown-eyed susan, Rudbeckia hirta, this one produces flower stalks that can grow to be 7 ft. tall.
