What are the purple ones to the top right of the coneflowers in the last pic? I've seen them a few times but never knew what they were.

That's a Clematis 'Rhapsody'. You will have to get one and then you will be hooked. I have a dozen or so.

For some reason, I can't get purple coneflower to survive a winter here. It's strange, there's so much that does well in my yard, but that one never comes up in the Spring. Frustrating. I was trying to get something with lots of color in the front yard.

If you didn't plant the white ones, that is truly amazing! God's handywork.

I had clemantis in my front flower bed and it did nothing so I pulled it up and stuck it out behind the garage where it's very happily growing...can't wait until it blooms!

Love your flower garden by the way....beautiful!

Thanks! It's just so pretty! I love vine flowers, I'm waiting for morning glories to bloom but I have a red Mandevilla that is doing well so far ( I only put my garden in last week). I want more purple and blue in the garden though. But I'm only about half way planted. Was waiting for my paycheque, so now that I've got it I'm going plant shopping today. Super excited to see what I can find!

connier. Try a different location as they are hardy plants.

Yes Trish and this year there is even more white blooms.

Thanks Diane!

Happy Garden Shopping Kara!

Millie I also have a Coneflower that had puple and white flowers on the same plant for several years. Eventuallly the white died out and one yr there was a double flower like Coneflower "Double Decker". The plant is not blooming yet so will have to wait and see what the flowers will be like this yr.
Here is a pic of the double flower,all on the same plant.
