The Head Gardener is beyond ecstatic to report her discovery today in the gardens of Wit's End of a fantastic new hybrid of Rudbeckia, unlike any ever seen before. The working name for this spectacularly unusual black-eyed beauty is Caterpillar Rudbeckia. However, the HG is willing to negotiate propagation and/or naming rights for an immodest fee. She is patiently awaiting the calls from the big names in horticulture and the inevitable bidding war that will result from her find. I've just popped a bottle of bubbly at her insistence. Before she took her first quaff, she graciously consented to allow me to post a picture. Feast your eyes, my friends!
