Mine is simply ugly and I plan on replacing it next year with a new one. It has never done well for me and is pathetic. While I like the color I don't like my plant.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

That's probably the best picture I've seen of a PowWow Wild Berry plant, that's not a stock photo. Yours is a nice bushy plant.

I'm really disappointed in Pow Wow WB. OTOH Pow Wow White is shaping up nicely and will be blooming soon. It took a long time to grow but when it hit a growth spurt it took off. I'm thinking it's going to be a very good plant. WB doesn't hold a candle to White. Bob, yours looks great.

I visited Home Depot this evening and picked up a nice Wild Berry for $5 on sale. They had received a shipment of them this week and the plants were all nice and fresh. This one will replace my existing one that has been so contrary this year. Hopefully it will grow better than my old one.

Glad to hear you got a new plant! Normally PowWow is a good grower, a excellent coneflower. Maybe you should throw your old plant away, might have mites or something. It just doesn't sound right to be having problems with powwow growing, its a vigorous grower.
Don't forget you can get a lot of seeds off your new plant and grow some more that way. Big Grin

Come to think of it...I've never had mite damage on a PowWow...even when it was planted by another hybrid or double with the mite problem. I'm telling you there it something very weak with some of these varieties. PowWow is one of the best. It can't stand this heat though. 'Pica Bella' is the heat master!

So....Clint, why is his not growing?? Powwow berry is a really good grower, why would he be having problems with his. You really think it could be the heat? Blinking

If he bought it at Lowes, it could be that crap Lowes plants are potted in. I've had so much trouble out of their plants and getting them out of that bark mix.

Well, I'm pretty sure he re-potted them. That would have been the first thing he would think of. Also he buys the good potting soil, like me its a growers blend. Big Grin

You mention bark mix but I've "discovered" Landscape and Grower's Mix at my local nursery which is heavy on pine bark fines and so far my plants are doing fine in it. Maybe what I'm using is not the same as what Lowe's contractor uses?
