Rudbeckia laciniata L. var. laciniata
The map is very incomplete, as most Virginia herbarium specimens are not identified to variety. Var. laciniata is common over much of the eastern U.S. but apparently not on the southeastern Coastal Plain. In Virginia, it is at least partly sympatric with var. digitata.
Floodplain forests, alluvial swamps, seepage swamps, tidal swamps, riverbanks and bars, wet meadows, clearings, and roadsides; also in rich, mesic upland forests, especially in the mountains and along major rivers of the Piedmont. Presumably frequent in the mountains and Piedmont, and infrequent in the Coastal Plain. The disposition of infraspecific taxa in this species is unclear at present, and most Virginia specimens of Rudbeckia laciniata have not yet been determined to variety. Further study is needed (see Comments).
