This is growing in my brother's yard now, says I gave it to him Blinking I vaguely remember it Whistling no longer in my yard. Any ideas? It comes back bigger every year.

It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

You really need to show the plant overall and the leaves if you want an ID... but based on what can be seen, and a general hunch, maybe Rudbeckia laciniata 'Goldquelle':

Edit: Correction... Rudbeckia x laciniata 'Goldquelle'.

Are the leaves fuzzy?

A larger picture please with some of the foliage. I'm guessing it is not a rudbeckia........But I'm sure some one here will ID it. How tall?

Cutleaf Coneflower (Rudbeckia laciniata 'Goldquelle') No leaf images in our database either so if the plant in question turns out to be 'Goldquelle' we sure could use foliage photos. Green Grin!

I will check to see if the leaves feel fuzy. He cut it and brought it over . I never got around to putting it in water so this morning it was pretty much wilty. I'll see if I pop it in some water if it perks up..

How tall is it?
Rudbeckia laciniata 'Hortensia' (outhouse plant) also has double flowers and is very tall (5' - 8') while 'Goldquelle' (actually a hybrid with R. nitida, apparently) is supposed to be more compact (~3').

It's tall, at least 5' or more. I'll see if I can get to my brothers for a full photo.

The leaves aren't as fuzzy as my annual rudbeckia but they are definitely rough, not smooth at all.
