thanks. This one's petals are now sticking straight out instead of reflexed. I am going to have to separate it from it's "seed sisters" that are growing from the same cluster but turned out purple.

I like it a lot. It resembles Flame Thrower a little bit doesn't it?

It sure does look like a flame thrower. This plant is fairly tall unlike my 'flame throwers' that I have which are very short plants (even though they are suppose to get 3 feet). This same plant bloomed like this last year, but quickly faded to a yellow and looked like a paradoxa bloom. This year it's holding on to its orange color better.

The picture below is of the same bloom a few weeks back. It shows the two different types of blooms I got from starting seeds from single seed head (collected from I don't know what type of ech two years back). I planted a few trays of various seeds I collected from my collection to see what would happen. I planted them in groups from each seed head. Most came out purple, but I got a few interesting colors and forms.

I am glade to hear that I am not the only one that Flame thrower is real small for. Mine is in its forth year and has not reached much over a foot tall yet.

I have a first year (for me) Flame Thrower that's still small which I purchased from Romence Gardens. If it doesn't grow much or bloom this year I'll contact them and ask for a refund. I thought that Clint had a good Flame Thrower but maybe not.

Flame Thrower won't bloom the first year if it was a small plant when you got it. It is one of the most hardy Echinaceas though. You will love it next year for sure.

Clint, I read of small Flame Thrower plants or smaller than stated. Have you experienced any stunting with yours? Mine is small and slow growing but was a young plant when I got it and was advised by Romence prior to shipping so I wasn't concerned about size until I started reading this. ??

I think it's short, but give it at least until next year. It is a tough one.

Ok, it's short but according to Terra Nova it gets up to 3 ft. Correct? Houston, we have a problem. Confused So, how old is yours or how long have you had it? The second year it should be mature enough to see if it's actually going to reach its maximum height. Do you agree?

Yes. They probably include the tallest bloom stalk. LOL.

This guy looses it's orange color and looks fairly close to a paradoxa.. except the petals don't reflex quite as much. Thumb of 2012-06-18/Nevermore44/af0e94

I still like it. I wonder what seedlings from it will look like. You would get some interesting plants if you saved seeds from that beauty!

I like it too. The only thing I have close to Paradoxa is Prairie Giant that is pink. I need a yellow.

I am going to bag this one actually. The goldfinches are going to town on my pallida and paradoxa now.. so i don't want to loose the seeds. I will distribute here if you all want some.

That would be great if you had some to distribute. I'll have Bravado this fall and perhaps some others too. Heck, I may even have some Bravado plants to give away because I have many young volunteers from last years seeds. Unless or until they bloom I won't know exactly though. The seeds will be named.
