Get the Sunglasses ! (Echinacea purpurea "Sunset")

A Great Spangled Fritillary on coneflower "Sunset". These are true colors. I lost this beautiful flower to a raccoon last winter but I plan to replace it.

Well come on over ! I think with the internet these days, you could probably order most of these flowers over there. Just "Google" different flowers that you'd want and visit sites. Most of them will send you a catalog, or you can order right online !
Unless you meant the butterfly. In that case you'd have to move.

Another fantastic shot diohio.! I've grown this plant along with the echinacea 'sunrise', 'harvest moon', and none of them have come back for me. I believe they have hybridized this plant to death, and though they have invented some very beautiful, interesting colors, they have lost the plant's durability somewhere along the way. I believe, in these new colors, they have become short lived perennials at best. I have three friends who have also lost all of theirs the last two years, who have the same opinion. I know we may be reaching, but I'm going to need proof they are hardy enough to come back several years in a row before I'll buy any more of them. Hope you have much better success with yours, please let me know.
