Rudbeckia subtomentosa, Sweet Black-Eyed Susan, or Sweet Coneflower, receives its common names from the flower's sweet anise scent.  Sweet Coneflower has numerous 3 inch flowers consisting of yellow petals around dome-shaped central disks that provide nectar for butterflies and seed for Goldfinches.  This large attractive plant looks excellent in the middle or back border of a butterfly garden with Echinacea (Purple Coneflower) Veronicastrum (Culver's Root), and Penstemon (Foxglove Beardtongue).  

Rudbeckia subtomentosa is a very attractive large black-eyed Susan, this native wildflower can be planted in sun to partial shade in native wildflower gardens, meadows, and in formal flowerbeds .  Sweet Black-eyed Susan is a long lived perennial.
