That plant looks great , percentage wise I have not had anymore problems with their plants then any other grower. They release a lot more so they have more problem plants . But some of them are also very good. I also have mine in a raised garden with a good amount of sand added to it.

I don't buy their Echinaceas anymore. I find they don't have good branching. Terra Nova's Heuchera are good though. Cheyenne Spirit seems to grow better and it is more compact and fuller too. Even one of my favorites from Terra Nova, Merlot' has poor branching and it's a pink variety. I think they need to start over with better plants in their crosses. If another company can produce such excellent plants so well from seeds, surely Terra Nova can improve their plants too.

Right on Clint. I see what you mean by branching. Interesting. Thanks.

See that is what is confusing to me branching for me is much better on Terra Nova plants then Marco van Noort plants where I never get more then a couple. Could it be different weather conditions. CS have been great so far but I will need to see how they make it thru a couple of winters before giving up on other plants. And I think it will be a long time before you see seeds for doubles.

I think Zinnias would be good replacements for the doubles until seeds are available. They are very easy to grow from seeds and very cheap.

Alright, one final update before I deadhead them. Should have probably done it sooner, I was just enjoying them too much. Hilarious!

Why deadhead them while the color is still so nice?

I guess mainly because some of them have mite damage.

Do they bloom with holes already on them or not? Blinking
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

I have not caught the villain yet. I had to have another one of these, they just smell so good.

Those have a great yellow on those... almost too intense.

My camera tends to increase yellows and reduce reds. But they have some of the largest flowers of any Echinacea and I have never had one that had such a strong fragrance.

Man I love this one! Amazing color that lasts a long time not to mention giant flowers. Wish it didn't have mites, then it would be perfect. I already cut the bad blooms off.

Lee, I especially like your bottom photo. The coneflowers look nice among the rock.

How long is Now Cheesier holding its yellow color? It's a pretty flower in your photos.

Thanks Vicki. Interesting I have never lost a coneflower along that rock wall. I believe that it may provide better drainage? Just a thought. The color on Cheesier has been in bloom for about three weeks and it has hardly changed. The first photo of the singular flower is a little more accurate color, the second two are a little brighter than actual.

They do hold color well plus have some of the largest flower of any Echinacea.
