Thanks for your quick response Dennis.

I found a tag by plant and they are Rudbeckia Goldstein. Flowers have 14 petals. Does this change your answer?

Yes- this would make sense that Rudbeckia would bloom a bit later than echinacea, depending on type and light they receive. The same is occurring in my garden. You should know soon!

Thanks Rebecca and Dennis
