I may have to add Cheesier to my list to purchase for next year.

The first Cheese coneflower didn't do so well for me, so I've kind of automatically skipped over this one.

If it will grow in Wisconsin, it should make it in Missouri.



Does it look different than the Cheyenne Spirits?

Much larger flowers, and this one has such a good fragrance, best of an echie I have ever had.

I am really liking the Leilani that you mentioned. I'll have to watch for Now Cheesier next growing season.

The CS fades to more of a yellow/white and the Cheesier fades to a true yellow. Also, the Cheesier doesn't get the brown spots on the petals like the faded CS.

Cheesier is hard to find whereas CS is easy to find and doesn't cost but half as much. I'd like to have one but not for the price. If it were to be more available at a reasonable price then I'd buy one. That doesn't appear likely though. Great color and shape.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

Another update on Cheesier. This is my favorite plant of the year. Giant flowers that have been on the plant for almost six weeks! The best yellow imo. Had mites last year but better this year.

Lee, pretty picture and Now Cheesier coneflower.

Since Now Cheesier is doing well for you, they should overwinter in Missouri.

I've got Now Cheesier on my "to purchase list" for next season.

Thanks everyone. We even had one of the coldest winters on record, 40+ days at or below zero too.

Beautiful plant. i wish that more vendors sold it, especially Santa Rosa Gardens. Or one of my local nurseries. I can buy Leilani here but not Cheesier.

Made a trip a week ago to a somewhat local nursery called Ebert's Greenhouse Village. https://www.ebertsgreenhouse.com/ Huge place with plenty of hard to get items. The had a nice selection of Now Cheeiser...naturally I had to pick up four of them. They were decent sized plants and were only $8 each. Not too bad. They even had their own patch of Cheesiers and they were beautiful. I though I would share them with you.

VERY PRETTY! Good photos too. I have to put it on my shopping list for next year. Is that correct color? If so then it's a nice bright yellow. I tip my hat to you. Thumbs up

Thanks guys. The color is very correct and holds it for a long time. They have such a large flower too. They were normally 10.99 and they had them on sale. Couldn't leave without 4 of them, just wouldn't be right. Big Grin

Even 11.00 is a great price and 9.00 is a steal. Yes, it's on my shopping list for next year.
