Notes:

Perennial, grows up to 6 feet. Leaves look like fingers. The flowers are the same size and shape as purple coneflowers but they are bright yellow. They must be a wildflower as I dug them up in a drainage pond at the local library. There they were small and growing in hard red clay in the heat of last summer but grew huge in good soil and rainy weather.

    Rudbeckia yes… Compare to R. Nitida or rudbeckia laciniata

    Looks just like the black-eyed Susans that reseed and grow wild here in north Georgia. Love this plant. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudbeckia_hirta

    The petals don’t quite look right to me for coneflower, but id could be. Might be a variety of Rudbeckia.
