E is For Echinacea

White Cone Flower
Commonly known as cone flower, and scientifically known as Echinacea, this flower comes in a variety of colors such as white, purple, pink, orange and yellow. I only have the white color in my little garden and it needs no caring from me.

Echinacea Growing
I bought it a few years ago at the end of summer season, and it was half dead. After planted down, I watered it and kept my eyes on it for a while. It regained the thrive to survive, and came back year after year.

A Pretty White Cone Flower
This year with the weather being on the strange side, my echinacea didn't have many blooms just yet, but I still have two months of summer left to see. With the menace squirrels, who loved to tear apart the new flower heads, I am hoping it will survive.

  1. The white variety is very pretty, that's for sure. So far this year, all I have are leaves on my Echinacea!

  2. I love all the colors and varieties of the cone flower.

  3. How pretty! I hope the squirrels leave it alone...

  4. very pretty (and I hate squirrels for popping the heads off my tulips!)

  5. That's so pretty, I only think about it is tablet form to keep me healthy but now I'm thinking it could be great in our garden.

  6. Everyone is showing off their blooms! So pretty! Great E choice! Have a terrific week.

  7. That's the kind of plants I need--ones that thrive without care from me. I love the idea of gardening but don't find much time for it except to keep the yard from becoming overgrown--so my "gardening" is most often of the weeding variety!

  8. I love that plant, they are so beautiful!

  9. I never knew that this what the flower looks like. So pretty.

  10. Cone flowers are pretty even after the petals fall off! Great photo, Mumsy!!!

  11. wow, love so much the lighting and the dept of field in this photo, the details in the flowers are awesome.

  12. I never even new echinacea had flowers. I've always just thought of it as a plant that was good for the immune system.

    Thanks for sharing!


  13. pretty! I have pink ones I started years ago from seed.

  14. I got distracted by your coupon thing for free laundry detergent...

    But then I came back to see your excellent photographs of echinacea.

    Can't you brew the dried petals into an herbal tea as well?

    Thank you for linking.


    1. Hi Jenny,
      I saw the capsule type in the market, but have yet tried to brew them as tea..I didn't even know we could consume this :-)
