Coneflower Surprise

This surprise purple coneflower bloom is striking in contrast with the sprawling yellow of the "forsythia" sage (Salvia madrensis) that Renee from Renee's Roots donated to me last fall.

I'm really liking this large sage. It's form is very arching and architectural, too. And it looks to be spreading, now that the soil is a bit damper.

Very pretty, especially with the coneflower. I thought my coneflowers were dead, but they're making a tentative comeback now. (Renee gave me some of that salvia, too!)
