Favorite Plant

White Swan Coneflower
(Echinacea purpurea 'White Swan')

It is going to be another hot weekend. The garden continues to hold up, but some plants are a bit fried. One flower that just won't stop blooming is the White Swan Cone Flower (Echinacea purpurea 'White Swan'). It doesn't need staking, has never had a pest, and its seed heads are enjoyed by the birds; it also seems to really hold up well in the heat. It is planted in full sun and is 18-24 inches tall.
