Mystery Color

It will maybe take two summers to uncover the latest mystery on hand. I purchased five purple coneflowers from a local garden center. Not part of the mystery. I also purchased two mystery plant containers. I only know that they are coneflowers and are gigantic in size compared to the size of the other five purple coneflowers. I just don't know the color of the flowers and may not know until next summer. The heads didn't make it, but the plants will... unless I forget to dig a hole for them which is very possible! So will it be purple or white? I am hoping for purple.

I've never heard of white cone flowers

I hadn't before either... I will try to get back to the nursery and get a picture of the plant to post. Nice looking coneflower, but doesn't fit with my garden plan.

sometimes the unexpected is the nicest surprise of all!

Yeah, I don't know. If it turns out to be the white one it will be a bit dissappointing. I wouldn't kill it off, but I would have to replant it somewhere else. Working on that mass color theory. Picture of that to come in a later post. So I don't know that this case of the unexpected would be the nicest surprise of all- it would have to grow on me. However, I could take that surprised better than my wife if she were unexpectedly pregnant again. That will have to be another post.
