  3. Beautiful - mine are now fading as they do at this time of year, but the seed heads are standing tall to feed our feathered friends over the winter.

  5. Oh they are rather attractive Sue. Which varieties are they ? I've not had much joy with growing echinacea.

    1. I've no idea which varieties they are, Anna as they came in a mixed perennial collection. I just wanted a colourful display for the allotment without paying a lot.

  6. I love this flower, but it seems to be not very hardy for a "perennial". The white ones survive OK, but two years in a row I have lost pink ones. One was "Little Magnus", but I can't remember what the other one was called.

  7. So pretty. The last photo is lovely with the lilac flower behind it, is it ageratum?

    1. It is a tall growing ageratum, Jo.

  8. The last photo is very pretty Sue! I love this combination - blue and pink. I should plant ageratum as well.

  9. Gorgeous photos of beautiful Echinacea! I have in recent years branched out into proper gaudy Echinacea. They hold their colour so very well. I still love White Swan, but the pink/orange ones make me smile more!

    1. This came in a perennial collection, Sarah, I doubt they will overwinter with us in our heavy clay soil. Maybe if I get the chance I should lift them with the dahlias,
