Rudbeckia amplexicaulis (Clasping Coneflower)
Clasping Coneflower is a cheerful annual wildflower. It grows best in moist soils, but is adaptable and tolerates heat, drought, and various soil types, as long as they are well-draining. It prefers full sun but will adapt to part sun or light shade.
Clasping Coneflower can form colonies under favorable conditions. It perpetuates itself by re-seeding, so despite being an annual, it will remain in the garden if allowed to go to seed.
Clasping Coneflower is perfect for micro-prairies, perennial gardens, wildflower meadows, and naturalized areas.
