Just thought I would add these photos here to put into the "collection". I'm not sure of whats causing this but there are plenty of possibles. I know of a few like "Aster Yellows" and "Flower distortion disease of Rudbeckia hirta",viruses, bacteria, pesticides, herbicides and other possible environmental factors or even just genetic mutation. So really an answer is unlikely from seeing the photo but who knows. One of you may. Crossing Fingers! I'd like to see what everyone else has experienced in phyllody (development of leaf-like flower petals) in Rudbeckia's primarily. Thought it might be interesting to see everyones oddities. Here's mine. They were shipped in from the SF bay area. Two plants one is fine and both have significant hail damage. I tip my hat to you.
