Calke Abbey Garden 6/7

Not unlike the Rudbeckia flower I showed yesterday I believe this is a species of Echinacea, and indeed I understand both types of flower are fairly closely related.  Once again the experts among you might know more confidently what this flower actually is.

All gorgeous cone flowers, Brian...and, they get more character as they age.
Brian Walbey: They are what one would call "grand" I think Ray.
must admit I thought yesterday's were Echinaceas as well. They always make a fine show
Brian Walbey: Yes, we have another type of these in the garden at the moment.

It is indeed part of the medicinal echinacea family Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks for that Chris.
spectacular flower series Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Juan.
This series is getting better and better Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
They are indeed related and beautiful as well.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for that Mary.
I echo Richard's sentiments, I prefer today's shot Brian.
Brian Walbey: They are a lot bolder with the bright colour aren't they.

Wouldn't have known that if you hadn't said Brian would have taken it for the same flower.
Brian Walbey: I think there are loads of different types but I couldn't tell you any more than that.
Lovely image - the flowers are just past their best, which makes the image more interesting
Brian Walbey: I agree with that thought Tom, the one without the pollen is in a good place for the composition.
It's rellly nice, Brian, as is yesterday's.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Graeme.
I would have guessed this was a Rudbeckia as well. I usually associate the Echinaceas with a more cone shape to the head. But it's a gorgeous image, nonetheless - love all that pollen!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Elizabeth.
