Does anyone have a pic of a coneflower before the flower starts and a closeup of the leaves??
Though many cultivars have some striking differences, this is rather typical.
Here is a link that might be useful:
Rhizo, Thanks for the close up pic. I have been looking on the web but could not find any close up like you did. It is a purple cone flower a friend gave me, but could not remember where I planted it. Will post a pic tommorrow, maybe you can tell me if it is a coneflower or weed. One reason I thought it might be one is because the leaves have ridges on the side. Thank you again for the pic.
here is my pic? you can see a flower forming on one of them.
