Have you ever had a plant that you expected to grow up, perform and bloom like the picture it was represented of when you bought it, only to find out you have something totally different. Not only different but totally alien looking? This is a story of an Echiancea that is growing and seems not to realize what it is doing is abnormal. Come take a look for yourself....

Mary... You definitely need to add some even if it just the standard purple coneflower. I think if you do you would enjoy them.

They offer so much not only to the garden, but also of beneficial wildlife and fall interest in the landscape and floral arranging.

The best thing I like about them in the garden is they are basically maintenance free. Those kind of plants are always good to have.

I'm making up my list of what to get for spring planting. Coneflowers are in the top 5 to get.

I'm just really short of money right now and have some trades to finish before I buy anything else for me.
