A Walk On The Wild Side

There is a 12 foot retaining wall along a ravine that runs right by our house, leaving a nice, flat area at the top, and I've planted it all in wildflowers; this time of year it's mostly rudbeckias. I'd never realized what a sweet perfume they have until I massed them in this big bed. It's a haven for butterflies and bees, and later in the fall, goldfinches and other small birds in profusion, feed off the seedheads. Posted by Picasa

I always thought those were coneflowers (Echinacea)
I guess I did try and change that genus... thanks for pointing it out.
