Some of mine, These rudbeckias grow excellently in the cooler months but struggle in heat and took a fairly long time to bloom, what is your opinion Farhan? :

i would second. Earlier rudbeckias did have an adverse effect on bloom shape/color etc and plant suffered due heat, however unlike others, green eyes is not only healthy in terms of foliage but flower is also as it should be almost 4 inch across without any distortion.

MashaAllah. A wonderful display.. Zinnia peppermint is looking very unique. From where dud you get its seeds and is it difficult or easy to grow it from seeds.
