Hot Lava Coneflower

This is my coneflower plant called Hot Lava.  It is an orangy red flower and this is really a first year plant.  This is what they call a Hybrid, it will not give true form and color from any seed and in fact is probably sterile.  Click on the pictures to get a better close up view of the flowers.  Notice to the left in each picture, you can see a tall Lupine going to seed.  The black fence is 4 feet tall!  I did not realize when I was at the garden that this plant was that tall.
