Garden Lust: Old Dog, New Tricks: Hybrid Coneflowers

May 20, 2011 Comments Off on Garden Lust: Old Dog, New Tricks: Hybrid Coneflowers

Who  doesn’t love a coneflower? They are hardy, bloom almost all summer, and  they can cure what ails ya. And I love them, the whites and purple are an old stand by in summer , although despite these things I feel like they often get overlooked because they are so prevalent(not to mention native in many areas.) But no more as Patrick Swayze would say “Nobody puts baby in a corner”  and the hybrid coneflower  can pretty much knock your socks off.
