The 'Cones' Are Coming!

Coneflowers, or echinacea, are a collectable for me.  They are a dependable staple perennial with strong stems and long lasting blooms.   With a multitude of colours and forms, each year I try to add a couple of new varieties.  This year that included ‘cleopatra’, a simple elegant bloom in creamy yellow, and ‘supreme elegance’, a large bloom in pink-purple with ruffled centers.  My cherished ‘sundown’ is just opening its blooms, with its magical mix of orange-pink like a holiday sunset.  There will be more coneflower photos to come!  If you missed the more detailed post, you can read it by clicking here.
