The great coneflower emerges again this year! It’s such a show to see these coneflowers sprout up to 7 feet tall! The Rudbeckia maxima is a perennial native to Arkansas, Louisiana and parts of Texas. It thrives in hot, humid summers which seem to describe today and they attract butterflies, birds, provide nectar for Monarchs and Swallowtails.
We are in awe of this plant and can’t wait to watch it explode with its deep, gold flowers with black centers.
