    These flowers are wonderful! A beautiful garden!

    I have 3 different colors of them and can’t wait for them to bloom!

    • I only know 2 colors. What are the 3 colors?

        I have seen 3 colors of coneflowers: purple (like your first photo), white (like your third photo), and red. But Cee has a photo of one today that has more than one color in it!

      • Thanks for the comment. I saw the picture to which you are referring. The reason I took the time to do my post. I DO NOT FOR SURE but I feel the picture is mislabeled It looks like gailarda. I have pretty good background on our native American plants. I still have search for my pictures and will do a post on them.Both plants are “good neighbor
        or friendship plants” Gardeners call plants that are passed r to friend from your garden. The best known I is an indoor called the spider plant. The red and purple colors are very similar. Please remind if I forget. My memory is showing up

      • I spend time today and pulled out a bunch of pictures. Sometime the past, I named a number of plants with common a d botanical names I do a post on them. Another one on DAISIES the all look alike but are different.

  2. Echinacea has medicinal properties–have you ever tried to use it as such?
