Good morning Raquel! Wonderful photo of pollinator and coneflower. “White Swan’ is one of only two coneflower cultivars I’ve tried here that have lasted more than a few months. I’ve given up on most of the others after so many failures, but ‘White Swan’ has been a trooper for years and adds nice contrast to the pinky purples of the native coneflowers that are also very happy here.
Good afternoon Linda. Thanks, this is one of three cultivars that I couldn’t live without in my garden. The other two are ‘Magnus’ and ‘Sundown’.

The coneflower is bending down saying hello!
I think you’re right Tina.

That is a beautiful variety of echinacea…whitest of white….love the name as well. Great photo!
Thanks I’m glad you like it.

Pretty coneflower. I have a few of these grown from seeds and hoping they’ll start producing and multiplying!
Thanks Freda. Good luck, I’ve had some of my self-sow nicely.

I’ve never had a white coneflower ~ so pretty. Your photo is great too. The coneflowers haven’t bloomed yet here ~ we are always so far behind you!
Really? This is a great cultivar Kathleen, just as sturdy as the purple Magnus.

Beautiful photo, Racquel! Coneflowers are sure a bee and butterfly magnet.
Thanks Rose. Yes they are indeed!
