More Coneflower

As I mentioned yesterday,
June is perennial gardening month.
And in celebration of perennial flowers,
I'm devoting these last days of June
to some of my favorite perennial flowers.

Yesterday, purple coneflower had center stage,
but there are more coneflower varieties all the time.
One is a pale violet color, which lacks the deep saturation of  purple.
Here is a sampling of other coneflower colors;


Deep red-orange:

There's even mango!

I bet these would all be lovely together in a coneflower garden,
but I still love the purple ones the best.
