I have this intruder in the garden which I left to grow because I liked the shape of the leaves. Before it flowers I would like to know what this is. Can you please help help identify it so I know if its good or bad.

Thank You!

In the center of the photo, I see a bud that appears to have the shape of Petunia rather than Rudbeckia. Hopefully Dust8103 will be able to post another photo soon when the bloom is open ... that will tell the ID for sure.
