Rudbeckia Maxima

Giant Coneflower, Rudbeckia MaximaGiant Coneflower is a standout in the garden. It stands over seven feet tall, has beautiful blue grey leaves and bright yellow flowers. It attracts bees and butterflies. But, I wish I had not planted it. It is left over from my floral gardening days. It is so pretty I just can not get rid of it. I have replaced many other plants and shrubs with plants native to this area. I should replace this one with an equally beautiful and native Prairie Dock. Rudbeckia maxima is native to many southern states just not Illinois. It's only problem.
