I saw this coneflower at the New York Botanical gardens and was immediately attracted (fatally?) by the dark purple stems (no, those aren't shadows) that set off the pink blooms. I also loved that it was more "button" shaped, which I prefer over the reflexed petals many of the Echinacea have.

I haven't planted it in my own gardens yet - it isn't terribly easy to find and the one source I did find was a bit pricey. But the search continues....
