I personally need more flowers like coneflowers for my garden. Once they are established they are quite a tough plant that can tolerate heat and drought (or forgetting to water them). Coneflowers are from the genus Echinacea and bloom from midsummer through the early fall. These cheerful prairie natives come in quite a variety of colors. I find them to be a simple but elegant flower that keeps color in my garden long after most perennials are done for the year.
Here are a few of our favorites that we hope you enjoy.
Meet the Dan behind Dan330. He started a Pinterest account in December 2011 while off on a leave from his day job as a captain on an Airbus A330. While traveling the world, Dan practiced his longtime hobby of photography and developed his eye for natural beauty and appreciation of great photography.
Continuing his love of exploration and great pictures, Dan added Pinterest to his daily routine; especially during the long Minnesota winters. His eye for great photography was recognized by the Pinterest community and in just under one year, Dan330 had attracted over one million followers.
Dan and his wife Laurie have three children, seven grandchildren and two grand puppies.
When not pinning, Dan loves to travel and participate in just about any outdoor activity. There are a few exceptions to this, but to find out what they are you have to go to the Dan330 board dedicated to “Things he won’t do”.
