  1. Beautiful flower. I love flowers, but hate to garden. I hate dirty hands. I wish I loved to work in the garden like my grandmother did. Oh well. Thanks for stopping by my blog & for leaving me a comment.

  2. I have never heard of this flower. I know the famous pink coneflower but have never seen the red. Just beautiful.

  3. Oh I love this one! Red is my favorite!


Thank you!
