The plant started strong from a one gallon container plant in the spring. It has begun to drop leaves that turn from yellow to brown. I'm assuming it is getting too much water where it is, as we continue to have rain almost every day this season.

I will move it before the basal rosette succumbs to a drier spot and hope for the best.

I've got a thing for green blooming plants. By it'self the green wizard isen't overly impressive but mixed in with Purple Echinacea it makes a nice contrast. If your starting this one form seed (as I did) there may be a lot of variability in leaf form, also, and this might be common with Rudbeckias started from seed, but mine did not bloom the first year...they're blooming away now though ;)

This plant is a reminder that new plants are mutations that are desireable. It's a flower without the flower. Sort of a oddity/accent plant. I have also seen this sold as "Black Beauty". Plant in a visible area or it will be missed.
