Default ~Coneflowers~

Coneflowers come in every color! Post them here! Feel welcome to ID any too! I'm becoming fascinated with them and I do not think we've ever had a thread just for Coneflowers. With your help, maybe we can cover the rainbow of colors. And if you have more pix of one that have been posted, share your best here as well!

Seedlings I had started last year (from Booboo) are now in bloom!

Beautiful, linrose! There is something compelling about coneflowers, and they can be so photogenic and attractive, and are often seen with pollinators!

I'm actually building a bed around my Coneflowers so I'll have room for other flowering natives.

Cone flowers are a good centerpiece plant

Nice! Are the purple coneflowers the most popular? And do you use them in any way for their healing properties?

Like a watercolor, soft an fuzzy, taken on the run whilst in travel past a cluster.

Ever notice the more mature they are, the more their petals droop?
