I love this golden-yellow Rudbeckia hirta 'Prairie Sun' surrounded by flowers of magenta and purple such as Angelica gigas.

This rudbeckia -with an acid-green eye – is loved by pollinator insects, flowers for 4 months at a stretch and lasts for 2 weeks in water. Beautiful with crimson-black dahlias in the garden and vase.
