I grabbed a few packets of flower seeds a few months ago and planted them. One variety was the typical Black Eyed Susan, but I lost the seed packet or the other type of flower. Therefore I don't have a name for it and it began to flower recently and it is very pretty. I am hoping someone can help me identify it by name.

Thanks!

How about Rudbeckia 'sonora'.
Not exactly common black-eyed susan, but black-eyed susan non the less.

Domehomedee, that is what I was thinking as well, but didn't want to say it, because I wanted to see if anyone else thought the same thing. Thanks!

It also looks like one called "Denver Daisy" here in Colorado. This isn't a nick name - I guess it is its legal trade-marked name.

Yeah, they do look very similar, but there seems to be a lot more burgundy in the center. Maybe once mine matures, it will develop more burgundy in the center as well.

I think this particular plant got stunted because my dogs dug up a mole tunnel and in the process dug up this plant. It happened about a month ago. One of the other ones planted in a pot had one stem about 1 1/2 feet long but it withered about 3 nights ago cause I accidentally left it outside when it rained and the temp got around 34 F.

P.S. I grew up in Hermitage, TN. I had a lot of friends that lived in the Antioch area. :) We used to spend lots of time at the Hickory Hollow Mall lol

I think the greenery looks more rudbeckia than african daisy. And african daisies are much shorter, they are perennial here in CA and it seems to me the leaves are lobed. They really do look like the "Denver Daisy" image files online and it is a rudbeckia.

I ran across some pictures of the other plant I was talking about earlier that my dogs dug up. I snapped this pick before I planted it in ground. This is the same kind of plant as in the pictures above. Maybe it will help us figure out what it is. Excuse the dead leaves LOL

Oh yeah, the leaves are hairy if that helps any :-)

The "brainy" flower is a Celosia argentea var. cristata cultivar (and the ones in the foreground are Gerbera daisies).

For future reference, please start a new thread when requesting ID of a new plant (do not post at the end of an older, unrelated thread).
