A double decker rudbeckia!

Long Branch, NJ(Zone 7a)

I got this 'Radiance' Black Eyed Susan for two years now and had no idea it will turn out to be double-decker.

Interesting. I'd love to his this in my garden. Perhaps you've got a new "hot" plant.

Ayah - got it from Lowe's last year under the NJ 'native' plants section. Have not heard or seen it before, but the blooms in the tag looks like 'french fries' which caught my attention. They only grow about 10' tall, but the blooms are humongous.

Jane - wow! That is gorgeous! What you have is a type of Heliopsis. They grow really tall as what I said in the other thread. Sometimes they are referred to as 'false sunflower'. But I never thought there are double decker varieties too.

How beautiful!

I have a "Henry Eilers" Rudbeckia that's about to bloom. I can't wait to see that one too.

Tex.. Are the bloosm all startign to do that or onyl them two?

Long Branch, NJ(Zone 7a)

Starlight - the newer ones are starting to be like that. Somehow all the blooms are always double or there's always something going on around the cone or the center top of the cone. Then it became prominent as a double decker. Just like the echinacea double decker.

Tex68, guess I better pass on this one, 10' is too large for my small space community garden. As I've said, I only have a 8x19' space to grow my flowers in.

Ayah - LOL! My apologies! I meant to type 10'' (10 inches) tall NOT 10' (10 feet).
