Echinacea purpurea in bloom

[Photo: Echinacea purpurea inflorescence.]The old Echinacea plant which we've had for a few years is in glorious bloom. This is one of my favourite plants, even if it isn't exactly native (we're a bit north of its native range). Not only is it pretty, but it's one of those perennials you can plant and forget. [Photo: Echinacea purpurea, with native Rudbeckia hirta and invasive Campanula rapunculoides.]Click to enlarge this photo and see the inflorescences in many stages of development.
