Not a new variety but new to me this year. Orange Skipper is behind it.

I've become a big fan of rudbeckia but I don't see a lot of varieties. This was a lucky find. I was shopping for a variety like I grew for 3 years that died last winter.

That is lovely! It would be interesting to see if this one returns for you.

It should since it's rated for zone 3 and I'm zone 6b. I try to get plants that are 2 zones lower than here since I have everything in containers.

I thought it would be nice to see an updated photo of it. I like this one. It seems a bit top heavy and I have to support it to keep it upright. I just realized that I made a BIG error in the name of the plant. The correct name is Chim Chiminee. I goofed!

Kansas Bob, I really really like your Chim Chiminee rudbeckia. I googled to see if it was a seed variety of if they somehow created a hybrid. I'm going to have to purchase some seed of those.

I originally planted one 5 gallon container of Tiger Eye rudbeckia. It has reseeded into 5 containers and has come back up the past two summers. Before it gets up to 97 tomorrow, I'll try to take a picture of it. Maybe your Chim Chiminee rudbeckia will do the same thing. (I will remember those as foam dust mops.)

One seed source.

I'd be happy to save some seeds for you.

Kansas Bob, I may take you up on your offer of seed. Before I do that I need to post a picture of the rudbeckia I have growing. There are a couple of "different" ones growing in the mix that are not Tiger Eyes. I will offer you some of the Tiger Eye seed if I can figure out how to save the seed. I am thinking it was a larger seed so saving it should not be a problem. (I would like to figure out how to save petunia seed, but not sure exactly because the seed is so small.)

I'd like to get some tiger eye seeds from you. When the flower is ready to deadhead just cut it off and give it a few days to dry. You should be able to tap the seed head into a paper bag or envelope. I'll send a sase to you for my seeds. Don't worry about cleaning the chaff from them, I will do that and make it easier for you. Tell me when. In the meantime I'll save some of my seeds for you. Aren't most petunias hybrid?
