Large Coneflower

(Rudbeckia maxima)

Petals are often the focal point of a great flower, but R. maxima is known for its towering dark-brown central cones that measure from 2 to 6 inches high. The cylindrical-shaped centers are rimmed with slightly droopy yellow petals and sit above cupped gray-green leaves. Blooms from June to July.

Grows 5 to 6 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide in USDA Hardiness Zones 4 to 8; full sun.
