I've said in other postings that I have a love-hate relationship with coneflowers. This one is trending towards love...it is wonderfully fragrant, and seems to be doing very well in it's first full summer after planting.

I like this plant. It is similar to White Swan, but has larger flowers that last a bit longer. I am not sure if the seeds are tue yet.
