Self seeding plant need name for ??

gardnpondr(Zone 8)May 15, 2010

For Mothers Day my DH gave me money to buy plants with like I wanted. I went to this elderly gentlemans house that sells plants and he didn't know the name of this plant. He said it is like a black eyed susan and self seeds and dies back in the winter time. He said it gets about 4-5 foot tall and looks just like the black eyed susan but the bloom is about the size of a saucer. Do you know what the name of it is? I bought 3 three gallon pots of it because it sounds really neat!!

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

There are actually several types of rudbekia (black eyed susan's botanical family name). Without a picture it would be hard to say exactly though.
