Wildflower Wednesday: Echinacea purpurea

My seed-sown Echinacea purpurea just began to flower this week.

Echinacea purpurea, purple coneflower

I don’t have many of these plants yet. I had perhaps five or six seedlings survive my first winter sowing adventure, and last year (their first year) they slept, of course. This year they are beginning to creep. I have sturdy individual plants that haven’t yet grown into substantial clumps. I look forward to next year, when I hope to have an attractive if small sweep of them brightening up the blue slope near the road.

Wildflower Wednesday is hosted by Gail at Clay and Limestone on the fourth Wednesday of each month.
