These plants (Echinacea, Rudbeckia and Gaillardia) certainly do not mind the heat and humidity. There is a small flower bed in the front of the house. The flower bed was located there so it can be viewed indoors from the dining room table. These plants are blooming there now. I am particularly fond of the coneflower. It is Tennessee Coneflower or Echinacea tennesseensis. Notice that the flower ray is flat not curved like the typical purple coneflower Echinacea purpurea. On such a hot and humid day like today, it is really nice to be able to sit inside and enjoy the beauty of these flowers and also watch the insects and birds that they attract.
