Coneflowers Bathed In Summer Warmth
Photograph - Photograph
Coneflowers are beloved by insects, spiders, birds, you name it. Even people adore it.
I leave the dead seed heads on all winter as the goldfinches come to feed on the seeds. Solitary bees and some other bugs make the dry, hollow stems a home through the bad weather and cold, and praying mantises lay their egg masses all through the patch of plants.
Hybrids include quite a few colors, and height can vary from 2 to 4 feet. These wildflowers grow at least four feet tall.
I used a filter from Lightroom to add this summer glow.
