Rudbeckia hirta: seeds

[Photo: seeds of Rudbeckia hirta (black-eyed Susan).]Rudbeckia hirta, known in English as black-eyed Susan, gloriosa daisy, or yellow ox-eye daisy, and in French as Rudbeckie dréssé is a biennial native to most of North America. Its daisy-like flowers have bright golden yellow rays surrounding dark brown cones in the wild type, though many cultivars with various colourings are available.

I collected these seeds from my landlords' garden; the parent plants came from seed given out by the High Park Nature Centre for Earth Day 2007.
