Giant colorful and inexpensive flowers. Can't not like 'em.

I'm retired Fishing is my job.
Zone hardiness?
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

Coneflower620, that is an attractive picture of your flower.

I was Googling to see if it is a plant that can be grown from seed.

I planted a couple of types of Rudbeckia for this summer. This is the first time I've planted Rudbeckia seed or had Rudbeckia. It seems to be easy to grow from seed.

Tiger Eye Rudbeckia is one type I planted and the plants already have flowers.

5a Bob. Thanks Vicki. It might make it here might not. If not seeds will be my next option. Being a newbie here and in the yard, I had to go for the instant gratification and buy them with flowers already on them. Rolling on the floor laughing Now that it looks like I care about what my yard looks like, next year I can start doing things more cost effectively.

Lee, I totally understand about buying plants instead of planting seeds. I just purchased the six Cheyenne Spirit plants when I have a few seedlings growing, but I didn't want to wait forever to get flowers. I purchased three PowWow Wild Berry plants earlier this summer. They were around $4.00 each and it wasn't worth the effort to plant seeds and grow them. I wanted the flowers now.

However, Cheyenne Spirit plants, someday I am going to plant some more seed of those. If I can get quite a few of those growing, I am going to greatly lessen my purchasing hybrid coneflowers that are expensive, except the doubles.
