    Is anyone else growing this great coneflower? It's hardy(at least to zone7) It's over 7foot tall, laughs at drought and is full of bees and butterflies. I bought one and in two seasons was able to divide it into five. What a yellow!

    I love the yellow. It seems to be a predominant color in my garden this time of summer.
