I'm hoping someone here can tell me what variety of rudbeckia I have. They came with the house, growing in a small patch under a tree and a few out back in the sun. I've let them spread and now I have tons of them Smiling I'm surprised how well they do in the shade. They stay short and tidy in the shade and get taller and sort of tangled in the sun. I've provided photos from both locations.

I bought some rudbeckia seeds to plant in another area, expecting more of the same, but those grew taller and had hairier leaves. These are more refined looking, if that makes sense.

I want to include some collected seed in the seed swap, and I'd like to be able to list them properly.

Thanks for any help! I'm new here, by the way, and really enjoying exploring the site. Spent the morning looking at bird and insect photos. Fun!

Welcome!
Hi, Sandy,
I think your Rudbeckia is a variety called 'Goldsturm' Long lasting blooms and lovely seed heads through winter for the birds.
