I am glad to know that I can ask questions about gardening. My question is as follows,this last spring we purchased a plant called yellow Echibeckia Sumerina. Turns out this is an exceptional plant that has the probability of having each flower last up to ten weeks,it is presently still in bloom after six weeks.The plant marker indentifies it as a perennial,the nursery owner says it is an annual since it is a cross between Rudbeckia perrenial and Echinacea annual,which is it
Hope you can answer this for me.
Thank you

Welcome! Florian,

I found this article published by one of our members about this plant...

And then in the comments she came back .... Check out the comment section too.

Looks like a lot would depend on where you are...Country, State, Zone, etc. You can fill out your profile, which would then be included in your posts.

Again Welcome! to NGA!!!

Edited to add...They are both perennials.

They are marked as perennial but I do not know anyone that they over-wintered for including myself. I have noticed that none of the garden centers in my area have them this year after they were all over the place last year.
