A neighbor gave me this and said it was some sort of wildflower, but he didn't know what. It keeps getting bigger and bigger but hasn't bloomed yet. I haven't had any luck identifying it in a flower book. Does anyone know what this is?

It looks a lot like Rudbeckia laciniata (cutleaf coneflower).

Also, the next time you need an ID try this forum: You'll usually get an answer within minutes :)

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
