It’s only taken me 3 years to get a Cone Flower plant going here.  I never did get one going and blooming in El Paso…and I spent 5 years trying to grow what grew in my Mom’s yard like weeds!!!  Sad.  My thumb is not near the shade of green her’s was.

Check this one out… maybe it will seed itself and spread for next year.


The flowers opened yesterday and the plant is about 2′ tall.  There are multiple buds :-)  I just love these flowers!   Only thing better is the sunflowers when they bloom.

  1. They are beautiful, I’m sure the deer would just love them up here. Congrats. Ann

  2. Aren’t they gorgeous? I love it when mine bloom—at least they bloom –not like weeds tho… Love that purple! Glad to see they finally decided to behave…..
