Ask, and Ye Shall Receive

My Rudbekia ‘Goldsturm’ didn’t do much procreating in the last two years. Oh, they bloomed. They made the butterflies and the bees happy, and they made me very happy with their gorgeous flowers. But I was surprised that there weren’t many seedlings the second year. Some of the plants had offshoots that I could separate if I was feeling strong. (Those rhizomes (?) are tough buggers!) But no separate seedlings.

Apparently I had to wait one more year. MANY babies this year. Oh, so many! They’re almost a little weedy this year, but I have plans to share with friends.

What is particularly prolific in your yard this year?

    Rudbeckia spp. are prolific here, too. As soon as they show signs of fading, which they tend to do where it is really hot, out they come to be replaced by the also prolific Madagascar periwinkles and Melampodium.

    -Rudbeckia. Last year was the first year, and it bloomed in August from seed planted the previous fall. This year, the plants came back and are blooming now. Don’t know what kind it is.
    And cleome. Again.

    I guess this must be a really good year for Rudbeckia. I wonder what it is – the wet spring, maybe?
