Great Coneflower (Rudbeckia maxima)Native to a small area of eastern Texas, northwest Louisiana, southwest Arkansas and southeast OklahomaThis is perhaps the most unusual Rudbeckia you’ll find. It has stunning big blue leaves and a strong set of stalks that reach up to 6 feet tall and can take any wind. Blooming in midsummer, R. maxima prefers soil on the wetter side but is adaptable. It also makes for some nice winter interest.

Tall visual statement with blue green leaves and living birdseed too! Can't wait to try this in the low lying damp area of my back yard.
