Sing-A-Long: Put the Lime in the Coconut

Do y'all know that song? Maybe not... Anyway, it has two meanings for me about now:

1. Check out this dainty Coconut Lime Coneflower that is blooming right now. Like the frilly pink coneflower I featured recently, it's small in stature, took a couple of years to do right, and now is remarkably heat- and drought-resistant. And so pretty!
2. I'm leaving for a place where I can drink the song's namesake tropical drink tomorrow: Mexico! WOO-HOO! See y'all next weekend! Have a great week!

Awesome coneflower. I love blooms in the lightest shades of green. Congrats on finally getting it to do as you pleased! Have fun in Mexico!

Ginger, what a lovely coneflower. The center reminds me of those cute little lime green mums.

Have a wonderful time in Mexico! Drink one for me :)

I like that a lot, I never woudl have guessed a coneflower. I just got the double stuff one (in pink, after having only the straight species) and I love them. I think this may be my next plant to get.

Question: do you let it self sow and if so, does it stay the same?

I realize you asked me about my water fountain -- it was from the now almost defunct Smith & Hawken (gift card purchase)

Have fun on your trip. We had a blast in Playa Del Carmen last month.
