Deformed Rudbeckia plant

themayorfamJune 16, 2013

Just noticed today that a clump of our Redbeckia has grown deformed this year. Its in its 3rd year and we have a lot of wild growing Rudbeckia but this one happens to have been from store bought seed.

Its oddly deformed and the stems are wavy and FLAT.
Any info would be appreciated whether its good bad or no big deal. We don't spray for pests or weeds and don't live in the city. Thanks

It's called fasciation, and it's a physical abnormality that occurs in many different plants - I had a fasciated Bleeding Heart a couple of years ago. It was normal the next year, and yours probably will be too.

Here is a link that might be useful: Wikipedia on fasciation

And this link has a picture of black-eyed Susan that looks very similar to yours!
