Rudbeckia laciniata, or Green-Headed Coneflower, is native to the entire continental United States, except a couple southwestern states. It is a hardy perennial, which grows in floodplains, swamps, moist open woods and streambanks. It blooms in mid to late summer, with yellow flowers that have a green center.

This plant does not look like too many others in its genus, mostly because of its green center - most other Rudbeckias have brown or black centers. However, a couple other plants, namely Verbesina alternifolia and Ratibida pinnata could be confused for it. See below for photo comparison.
