Can anybody identify this flower?


Ive searched Google / Google images, and 3 flower identification websites. Just hoping someone happens to know what they're called.

Thanks! A local nursery had some on clearance. Nobody there, that I talked to, could tell me what they were. I bought them on impulse and planted them. I wanted to know what they were, so I can read up on how to care for them.

I still believe it's a cone flower--the black eyed Susans have a rounded seed head.


They at a native prairie plant--no special handling needed---tough plants,

it's definitely Black Eyed Susan.
We don't dead head our Black Eyed Susan when the die off,
as the American Goldfinches love to eat
the seeds.

I think the petals on a cone flower are wider or more rounded. The black eyed susan petals are like the poster's, more narrow.

Both cone flower and black eyed susans are from same family and require same care. To keep the confusion going I just read Rudbeckia is cone flower.

My cone flowers didn't do well but my black eyed susans are flourishing.

Thats the problem with plant common names. The plant is a horticultural variety of Rudbeckia hirta or fulgida. In my part of the world, known as black eyed Susan's.

Coneflower most often refers to Echinacea. There's another plant which goes by yellow coneflower, Ratibida pinnata.
