I know there is often the criticism of this rudbeckia that the flowers do not stand out but I do like it. On an established plant with an abundance of blooms it really does come into its own. As well it requires no supplemental water.

I liked the pictures, and I like it in the flesh, so to speak....
The flower shape is a refreshing change from full-blown daisy form which can dominate a garden from spring through fall. It's less usual shape, and easier to work with shade of yellow are a plus.
It doesn't scream look at me, but don't all prima donnas get a little tiresome after a while? It is a mellow plant

I love this plant. I love the shape of the blooms. I planted it and realized it was in a shadier spot than I had thought, but before I got around to moving it, it grew and flourished and bloomed, and so I left it there. So now I have a cool rudbeckia in more-than-part shade. What's not to love? :)

The flowers are very delicate in appearance;a plant I'd like close to a sitting area... like my 'porch' garden.

I like it! A lot! That's a very pretty yellow, very clean, and the plant seems to be saying, "See me? I don't have to put on a lot of makeup to be beautiful!"

These plants are so hardy! I have had 'Henry Eilers' for years. It always returns without fail, even after someone cut one of them down with a lawn mower!

This is a photo of my 'Little Henry.' It does seem to be about a third shorter. The blooms look larger since the plant is smaller. I like both though.

Great picture 'ech'!

I had been meaning to put in a couple of "Little Henrys" as senior takes up so much room.

Might you post a photo showing a complete "Little Henry" in full bloom?
