Rudbeckias are for me the flowers of autumn though admittedly dahlias give them a fair run for the money. The flower celebrates autumn sunshine and deputises when clouds get in the way.

The two images below were taken in Annecy on July 20th on our travels. The town hardly needed any brightening up but I have never seen such a varied collection.

Now follows a series of varieties, some grown from seed, some perennial:

Rudbeckia laciniata ‘Goldquelle” Breezy Knees, 5th September 2015 

 Viette’s Little Suzy’, Breezy Knees, 5th September 2015 

Rudbeckia “Irish Eyes”, Audley End House, 27th September 2015

Rudbeckia “Capuchino”, Clumber Park, 22nd September 2015
Rudbeckia “Marmalade”, Clumber Park, 22nd September 2015  
And the most prolific of the lot, Rubeckia “City Garden”, again from Breezy Knees (of which more shortly) 5th September 2015
