White Coneflower Close up
Synonym: Echinacea purpurea alba, Brauneria purpurea, Rudbeckia purpurea
I have wanted to take a real close up of a Coneflower for quite awhile. It hasn’t really worked out so I thought I post this one and move on. White Coneflower is very beautiful and there are now more cultivars to choose from. This year the Coneflower has been superb (both the Purple and White) and I have been doing literally hundreds of shots of them. Maybe we can have a day where I post a number of the ones that came out well. Coneflowers are nice to hang around if you like insect shots, a variety of bugs visit them.
It is going to be a busy day around here as there is a lot of work around the house to do and I have to drop some flowers off in New Rochelle for planting tomorrow. It is a new garden and we are going to be taking care of it.
Here is the whole (well, almost) White coneflower that I did the close up on.
