Sunset Echinacea is the name of this coneflower, and it really does seem to have captured all the colors of a tropical sunset in its petals! The place where this pretty flower is growing is called Perennial Harmony, which suits it very well. It’s peaceful, quiet and very beautiful, much like this little flower, trying to brighten its own small corner of the world. ☺♥
