Rudbeckia maxima
Giant Coneflower

Giant Coneflower is one of the tallest coneflowers, often topping out at six feet. Its bluish, paddle-like leaves occur at the base and along the flowering stalks, becoming smaller as they ascend towards the large terminal inflorescences. Also known as Great Coneflower, this large Rudbeckia is best reserved for group plantings at the back of the border or as a specimen composed of a large clump.
