Rudbeckia fulgida 'Goldsturm'

Rudbeckia fulgida 'Goldsturm'
This is a favourite perennial which originates from the meadows and woodlands of North America (Michigan to Missouri, Connecticut to West Virginia) It is probably still covered in snow in its native habitat as I write this. Many of the Rudbeckias produce black seed heads which are decorative long after the petals have dropped from the flowers.This perennial likes a damp or heavy soil but is remarkably hardy and is not fussy as to where it grows as long as it gets a good amount of sun.
2017 update: I still grow this and have plants available in spring.
