Rudbeckia triloba and Ceratostigma (Plumago)

After the second season, the Rudbeckia triloba plants in front were unceremoniously moved to the back, above the wall.  It's a short-lived perennial species, but self-sows freely, in quantities not well-behaved in the full-sun conditions in front of my raised bed vegetables.

They don't flourish quite so well in partial shade, but that seems to be a good thing, and they're looking quite nice as the backdrop to the hardy plumbago (Ceratostigma plumbaginoides) that's also in flower right now.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
