I have a serious weakness for any daisy-like flower. Shasta daisies, sunflowers and rudbeckia are all wonderful in my book, but my all time favorite is coneflowers. This year while working our on our Top 10 Green Blooms feature, I vowed to try at least three new coneflower varieties in my garden. (It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it.)
So I need your help! First off, what hot new coneflower varieties should I try in my yard? I think Green Jewel and Pink Double Delight are both on my list (thanks for the photos Perennial Resource). But these are just the tip of the iceberg. Coneflower varieties seem to be multiplying faster than pillow pets, so feel free to offer up your favorites.
Second of all, do you have any great online plant places that you like to buy coneflowers from? I’m going to check out my local nurseries, but I could use a good online backup.
