Three lobed coneflower is the wild Brown eyed Susan seen in meadows throughout much of the eastern US. R. triloba begins blooming in July and carries on into early autumn, with yellow daisies surrounding brown cones on branched 2-3′ plants. Blossoms are favored by native bees and butterflies, and you will have this plant for years to come as it will naturalize by self sowing. Drought tolerant once established, but it does luxuriate in moist meadows.
