Love the contrast between petals and centre spikes 💗🧡

Cheers Kerry. I thought this had died until it flowered. It is very near a rudbeckia, whose leaves are quite similar, so it was a nice surprise when it flowered. I agree with you & the centre would be good for a "macro" shot 👍 @kez001uk

@jeatacake glad it flowered for you 😁 the petals look much more spaced out than most coneflowers. It’s lovely 😍

Thanks Kerry. Yes, you're right. I had not thought about that. I have a whole lot of 1st year seedlings which I hope will flower next year too 😊 @kez001uk

@jeatacake I grew mine from seed, they seemed to take forever til the first flowers. Well worth the wait though 😋
