Flowers – Purple Coneflower
A native to the eastern United States, purple coneflowers are found in many flower gardens. Planting purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) in the garden or flower bed draws bees and butterflies, ensuring that nearby plants have plenty of pollinators. Captured these in Blowing Rock, North Carolina.
Flowers – Artichoke
Artichokes are such interesting things. While we consider the artichoke a vegetable, even though it’s a thistle and more specifically, the part that we eat (and that most people ever see in the store) is actually a flower bud — and sometimes called a head. Artichoke plants produce stunning purple flowers that are great for attracting bees and other beneficial insects to your garden. Found this artichoke in Santa Monica, California.
