Rudbeckia with Purple Heart
These have long skinny petals, unlike most of the others.
These have a brushstroke of mahogany near
Most are just ordinary Rudbeckia.
This is not a weeding failure. The grass is
intentional -- Lemon Grass, a row of 9.
Coming up among the Lemon Grass are self-seeded Madagascar Periwinkles. I used to save the seeds to sow where they would all be purple. Then I went through a phase of palest pink. Now I enjoy all colors, come what may. These will clash beautifully with Rudbeckia. Eventually the Black eyes will die off and the Periwinkles will take the spotlight behind lavender Lantana Montevidensis.
Can a garden have too much Purple?
