Mutant "Freaks" in the Garden
Here is an interesting look at
coneflowers from this past summer.They are a very hardy group of plants needing no care what-so-ever.There are hundreds here in the Gardens at Waters East.The colors, the forms, the vitality of
these plants adds much to any garden space.As a contrast to these “regular” coneflower plants which are
posted here, take notice as you scroll down the photos.You will find “mutations”.There were three different “mutant”
plants this year.Something
happened to make these blooms turn out the way they did.Any ideas?
Check out these coneflowers.
