Title: Wrong photo in Native Plant Database
Answered by: Nan Hampton and Joe Marcus

QUESTION:

The picture to the left of the information for Rudbeckia laciniata L. shows a plant with a dark center. This is not the Cutleaf Conflower with which I am familiar. What is it? Thank you.

ANSWER:

Thank you for pointing this out to us. The photo has been removed and a proper photograph is now displayed for Rudbeckia laciniata (cutleaf coneflower). We aren't sure what the incorrect photo is yet, but we will assess it and put it back under its correct species.
