More Information

Description Rudbeckia maxima (or giant coneflower, Dumbo ears, cabbage-leaf coneflower, swamp coneflower, and great coneflower) has many names for a good reason. It's called "giant coneflower" because it reaches epic proportions, growing 5-7 feet tall with massive flowers. It blooms above huge powdery blue basal foliage, which resembles Dumbo's ears or cabbage leaves. It's easy to grow in difficult sites, and while it prefers good drainage, it can handle wet soils, which is why it's lovingly called swamp coneflower. These features make it a pretty great perennial, so the name "great coneflower" comes naturally.

It's pollinator-friendly, attracting butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds in summer and birds in the fall as the flowers give way to seedheads. It's also deer resistant and tolerant of a wide range of soils. Whatever you decide to call it, you can count on it calling your garden home.

Winterizing: You can let the last flowers of the season remain on the plants to go to seed and feed the birds.
