New for 2024 - Echinacea purpurea - The white-flowered form of Purple Coneflower. Perennial, although they often flower in their first year. A bit shorter than the purple type, these ones reach about 24". From what I can gather, they have similar medicinal qualities. 

Grown by Howling Mountain Farm (Torbrook, NS)
