Echinacea coneflowers at Time Landscape

Late July in Greenwich Village, New York City at the northeast corner of La Guardia Place and West Houston Street. Nine species of coneflowers and i think they were all here at Time Landscape, a living art recreation of Manhattan in the early 17th century. :)

Echinacea is a genus, or group of herbaceous flowering plants in the daisy family, Asteraceae. The nine species it contains are commonly called coneflowers.

Time Landscape - Landscape artist Alan Sonfist created Time Landscape as a living monument to the forest that once covered Manhattan. He proposed the project in 1965, after research on New York’s botany, geology, and history Sonfist and local community members used native trees, shrubs, wild grasses, flowers, plants, rocks, and earth to plant the plot at the northeast corner of La Guardia Place and West Houston Street in 1978. The results are a slowly developing forest that represents the Manhattan landscape in the early 17th century.
