Rudbeckia triloba

Rudbeckia triloba

It’s late summer, and gardens and roadsides are starting to display the many types of yellow-flowered perennials that seem to dominate into the fall. This is a particularly nice planting of Rudbeckia triloba, although a bit rangey since it’s planted in partial shade.

    love rudbeckia – so do the birds! Fall feeding frenzy over rudbeckia, echinacia and surprisingly, the seed pods of wisteria. My asters are in full bloom, and absolutely beautiful.

      My asters are taking their time this year.

      I love watching the goldfinches perch on Rudbeckia and Echinacia to eat the seeds. It’s a favorite fall sight.

        Me too, but the real fun is in the middle of winter, with the snow on the ground and ice everywhere, to watch the birds fight the wisteria seed pods. Somehow they always manage to get them open, even though the pods are usually bigger than the birds. Quite amusing exhibition of determination. Funny thing, I hang my suet/seed from the wisteria arbor, and the birds will go for the wisteria pods first. Guess it’s their version of a workout.

        I’m surprised that your asters haven’t flourished yet. Mine have been flowering and expanding for the last three weeks. Beautiful big (bigger than usual) blue flowers (alpinus). Ah well, you’ll probably have a beautiful display still going when mine have passed their best before date.
