Rudbeckia laciniata L. var. bipinnata Perdue
Map incomplete at this time. Var. bipinnata is a northeastern species that reaches its southern limits in se. Virginia. Most VA herbarium specimens have not been identified to variety, and this taxon may be more widely distributed in the northern and western parts of the state than indicated. However, it is morphologically very distinctive and stands out in online photographs of herbarium specimens; and to date, a comprehensive review of R. laciniata specimens on the SERNEC portal has turned up very few specimens of var. bipinnata. Virginia specimens of this var. were previously misidentified as R. laciniata var. digitata (P. Mill.) Fiori, reportedly a southeastern Coastal Plain endemic.
Reported from bottomlands, seepage swamps, wet meadows and clearings. Variety bipinnata occurs from New York and New Hampshire south to Virginia, and based on a limited specimen review appears to be very uncommon or rare in Virginia; its status, however, is uncertain.
