I have this suspicion that some of my supposed Rudbeckia are actually Echinacea. I don’t expect to identify these until they flower, possibly next year.

Description

Not sure which kind of rudbeckia this is, or where exactly I got it front when I planted it. It has much narrower leaves than the Rudbeckia hirta planted elsewhere. This clump has grown considerably between last year and this year, and I haven’t seen many volunteers elsewhere, so I suspect it is mostly spreading via roots.

Found under a flower pot. I’ve noticed some mint in a pot nearby that looked like it was being devoured, and I suspected a cut worm. Maybe this wasn’t the perpetrator, but I did toss it to a different part of the yard and the mint hasn’t been eaten recently.

I think it may be Boisea trivittata due to the red line on the thorax. It clearly has some wing deformities.
