hi, my friend has just up rooted some of the above plant for me, there are no flowers on it just leaves, at the moment the roots are sitting in water, am I ok to just plant it our, or do I need to cut it down to the roots before I plant it.

thanks x

thanks ladybird, do I need to cut it down, its quite tall with leaves on, sorry for being a pain, but I do love it x

Black eyed Susan? Looks more like a hardy geranium.

The non-hardy plant Ladybird referred to is a Thunbergia. I've also heard rudbeckias called BES. This isn't either

the one in the neighbour's garden will be a rudbeckia I should think. You'll have to find a tactful way of asking for a piece without implying that he doesn't know what's what in his garden.

Cut the leaves off right to the bottom of the stems. If it was my garden, with its rock solid soil, I's pot it up til it got some root and leaves and plant out in autumn

this is black eyed Susan (thunbergia)

this is Rudbeckia - black eyed Susan - might be how the misidentification might have happened

hi treehugger

thanks for your post, I seen black eyed susan in my neighbours garden a few years ago, the other day I asked him if I could have some, but it was hardy geranium that he gave me ha ha I will have to ask him again
