Garden Tuesday ~Purple Coneflower~

Purple Coneflower

Do you have purple coneflowers in your garden?  You should!  About the only bad thing I can say about them is that if left alone, they can take over a garden, but with a little heartless weeding, you can keep them in check.  Also, if you leave the flowers in the fall to dry, the finches love the seeds!

    I do have a couple of purple coneflowers and I wish they would take over the garden. I think the rabbits and/or the deer enjoy them.

    We have lots of purple coneflower, and yes, the finches do love them. I try not to deadhead the flowers until really late in the fall. I love seeing the goldfinches hang out on the flowers.
