This one is quite orange.. but i guess it will red up. It has the tell tail "tails" that flip up for them.. so i am pretty sure it's a 'hot lava'Thumb of 2012-06-08/Nevermore44/6919e4

Thanks for the new photo, it will help me to identify mine.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

Mine is developing the little colored "tendrils" around the cone and the color is slowly becoming more red so maybe mine is true after all.

These do darken down a bit to more red... but my camera also takes much better color in the evening vs the first photo which is in the morning sun. (no photoshoping)

Well Nevermore, I got my wish...my first beautiful Hot Lava! And there is many more to come. I love the extra 'tendrils'. Thumb of 2013-07-03/coneflower620/62c8bf

Nice. This is one of my favorite reds since they are fairly large flowers.. hold their color and have the tendrils.

Very excited, my prize Hot Lava is setting up for an amazing show this year. The plant is 42" tall. This is the plant my avatar picture is from Hopefully next week? Interestingly, not a single bloom seems affected by mites and they are rampant in my other flowers right now.

I was just wondering what you do to get such "perfect" flowers. Then I went back and read what you had posted.

Also, if that is the same flower that you posted about it being a second year plant in 2013, it evidentially likes your climate and keeps overwintering. It's going to be gorgeous when it blooms.

Yeah Vicki, interestingly I think I loose more plants due to loosing too much soil around the plants and the roots become exposed. The soil is VERY sandy and many of them are along rock walls where they drain very quickly. When I water them it causes the soil to drop down and the level gets too low for the plant. I need to start adding soil to every plant in the spring to keep it up.

I also lost most of my favorite Now Cheesier due to exposed roots from lack of soil. I was able to catch it in time before all of the growth points went bad so now it's starting to come back smaller but healthy.

I'll keep you posted on the Lava. Whistling Can't wait.

Great looking plant. The mites are very bad this year, plants covered with buds but I fear I will have to get rid of most of them. The doubles are really bad, sad looking.
