Where did these come from!....need an ID please?
#1 Supposed to be rudbeckia triloba and it had me going for awhile cause the leaves kind of have that stiff, crispy feel of rudbeckias. But the flower gave away it's little charade. The color is more of a dk. salmon-pinkish-orange. About the size of a quarter or so. Must have sneaked into the seed packet.
#2 Lamb's Ear?? Found as a stray in an established perennial bed. Never grew any, never sowed any and nearest neighbor is 100' away so I don't know how it got here. Has me a little unsure though since it's over 12" tall, not very gray and the 'ears' seem too big, some are 8" long. I thought lamb's ear was shorter, grayer with short ears.
