As much as I love flowers & have gardened since my early 20’s the Echinacea or coneflower never interested me til recently. I planted a few maybe 15 years ago & saw how butterflies were attracted to them.
One of my favorite colors! Heard purple was a royal color and loved pairing it with yellow or gold in my clothing years ago. Nature wears it well too!
Purple also reminds me of Prince
and his movie “Purple Rain
