Plant ID Confirmation

Orchid LadyOrchid Lady Posts: 5,800

I have grown three of these plants from seed....but lost the labels (I know, I know!!!). I think it might be Rudbeckia, but not 100% sure as I didn't think any had germinated!

Ive just seen some in the GC and it looked very similar, could someone please confirm if it is/isn't and if it isn't, any other ideas??

Thank you image

    I did sow some of those too so it's possible.....there was also echinacea but the petals look sort of inside out (I can't think of a better way to describe it than that) so not echinacea I don't think.

    Is there much difference between the leaves of gallardia and rudbeckia?

    Thanks Nut, I think you're right, the middle is different on Rudbeckia and they are also a but inside out image (I know what I mean!)

    At least I know what it is now, thank you image

    I think that's what it is OL but I haven't grown them for years. Nice. I might get some next year

    I think Nut is right, the central disc is not right for Rudbeckia.

    It is Gallardia, I have some this year, pretty but not visited by many insects, so it may go in the autumn.

    Not good for insects Dave? I thought it would be with that open centre.

    I won't have those if that's the case.

    Are yours being visited by insects OL?

    I've seen honey and bumble bees on ours, and hoverflies. image
