It is a member of the sunflower family (Asteraceae) and is known for its yellow-petaled flowers with a dark center disk, similar to the better-known black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta). With a bushy, upright habit and strong stems that do not need staking. The leaves are large and hairy, with a lobed or toothed margin and a light green color. The yellow flowers are 2-3 inches wide and bloom in summer and early fall, attracting pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and birds.
