• Rudbeckia laciniata - Green-Head Coneflower


    "Green-Head Coneflower is a herbaceous perennial that grows 3 to 10 feet tall with a tall and lanky appearance, although it may only reach half that height when cultivated. The plant prefers moist soil, but grows well in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade and is often found in woods, meadows, streambanks, and roadside ditches. The plant tolerates hot, humid summers.... A rosette of leaves that originate at the base of the stem persists through the winter, creating an attractive winter ground cover.

    "Butterflies are attracted to nectar from the blooms and songbirds, especially American Goldfinches, eat the seed in the fall. It is moderately deer resistant." (North Carolina Extension)
