We have these beauties blooming in our front yard flower bed right now. I love the symmetry of the coneflower seeds, and the fact that the bees focus so much attention on them. We used to have a small bed of them closer to the street, but they died out after being trimmed with the mower one too many times. I planted these from the wildflower mix in the early spring of 2020, but they didn’t come up last year at all – so it was quite the pleasant surprise to see them this year.
