Susans and Cone Flowers

 

Are these Black Eyed Susans? Or Brown Eyed Susans?

They were planted in a garden, rather than occurring alongside a road, if that makes any difference!

Next to the Susans are some Cone Flowers, or Echinacea.

Cone flowers are the same as echinacea, right? According to various sources, when looking up Echinacea, or the other way, Cone Flowers...they are the same. I don't know how to make any herbal help for colds, but many cough drops do say they have echinacea in them...so apparently people do think it helps. Here's where an herbalist would help!

  1. I usually call them brown-eyed but very often just call them rudbeckia. They are also called coneflowers by some. Echinacea definitely are called that. They are a main plant in our garden which doesn't get as much care as it should. They really make a nice showing.

    1. It's really nice that they reseed themselves yearly.

    1. And Queen Ann's Lace along the highways (or at least the older ones, not interstates).

    Echinacea is a good healer

    1. I'll have to look in my herb books to see how to prepare any of it.

  6. Barbara, Our front circle garden is awash in cone flowers! Both the bees and the butterflies love them. When they're done, the yellow finches come and feast on the seeds. As for the supply of seafood, our local chef has it shipped up from Florida where he has many contacts... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
