Comments
Two of the four known varieties of Rudbeckia hirta listed by Urbatsch and Cox in FNA (Vol. 21, 2006) occur in Virginia, but varietal maps have not yet been produced since most herbarium specimens are not identified to subspecific level. Var. hirta occurs over much of the e. US and is native to the Appalachian highlands. Var. pulcherrima Farw. is more western in distribution and may be introduced in our area.
Habitat
The species is common throughout, and generally weedy, in fields, pastures, roadsides, and clearings.
