This 6 to 7 foot tall daisy-like flowered
plant comes back every year – from April til frost – and has large flat pointed leaves. Although it has grown in the same spot for several years, I recently experienced intense skin irritation when breaking and pulling up the green stalks with bare hands – painful burning like fire ants on my palms !! Thanks for your help to ID.

    This is cutleaf rudbeckia, Rudbeckia laciniata:
    a wonderful native blackeyed susan…I’ve been successful in getting it to bloom in full shade!

    I am glad to know the name of this flower. Whenever I pass through Duluth, GA downtown, I could not help but appreciate the flowers.

    I like flowering plants that grows high from the ground and the more appreciable if it can be grown in the full shade or semi shade as my back yard so full of shade.

    Does it grow through branch planting using root harmon? I have propogated most of my plant through this method.

    I have to appreciate Walter Reeve for creating this site. It has now become so easy to find out about strange or beautiful flowering plants.
