I recently bought a plant that didn't list its name. I'd like to know what it is, since I've searched online but couldn't find anything.

    The leaves alone are probably not enough to identify the plant. You may need to let us know where it was found. If you have seen it flower, a description would be very helpful. Based solely on the leaves, I would wildly guess either Rudbeckia or Echinacea. – Eric Nitardy May 5 '14 at 2:37
  • Yup, Rudbeckia was my first impression... – stormy May 6 '14 at 22:31

It's an Echinacea - purple coneflower. E. purpurea is the most commonly planted species of Echinacea.

I agree with Eric's comment - it reminds me strongly of Rudbeckia, but until it does something else, i.e., flower, its hard to be definite other than to say I'm 99% sure its some kind of herbaceous perennial.

  • I think it is a rudbeckia also. I have a variety that looks almost identical. – J. Musser May 16 '14 at 21:35
