Missouri Coneflower, Missouri Orange Coneflower, Rudbeckia fulgida var. missouriensis


Rudbeckia missouriensis (Missouri Coneflower) is a long-lived perennial producing masses of glowing orange-yellow flowers, 2 in. across (5 cm), from early summer through late fall, no matter what the weather is like. Each flower has many widely spreading ray-like petals surrounding a dark brown cone in the center, providing fantastic warm color in the summer garden.

Both leaves and stems are covered with abundant spreading hairs. Missouri Coneflower is one of the less aggressive coneflowers. Plant in perennial borders, native gardens, cut flower gardens, wildflower meadows and prairies.
