Echinacea, commonly called the Cone Flower, is a native plant from the Aster family, and can grow up to 3 1/2 feet tall.
One of my husbands favorites is the Black Eyed Susan, which can also get nearly 3 feet tall.
And this Orchid is amazing me, it's just as beautiful and full of color as when I posted it on June 8th, and the fifth one had not yet opened . But the first one was at least 5 weeks old at that time. They are still stunning. You've got to remember, Colorado is a desert.
