Coneflowers

August 03, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

​Early this summer, we had favorable conditions for flower growth, especially in a bed that I had transplanted some black-eyed susans and purple coneflowers a couple autumns ago. We got plenty of rain and temperatures weren't too hot. All that has changed in the last 2 or 3 weeks. The flowering season for the coneflowers is about over. I'll let them go to seed, hoping to attract goldfinches and other birds in the fall, and to possibly thicken the bed in future years.

With the coneflower blooms quickly fading, I thought I'd try to get a few pictures of the one or two remaining photogenic ones. I was lucky to get a couple with some "workers" on them.
