Purple Coneflower Coming

Posted on Jun 23, 2016

This Eastern Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) is about to bloom to add to the menu for all of our pollinators. What is most striking is how at this stage the plant looks like it has a green glow in the center, a pulse of life about to explode in showy color. The flower is radiant and the fuel to the gorgeous creatures that will be flying for it soon.
