This is the only one of the new varities of Echinaceas I recently got that seems a bit spindley. Time will tell if the plant will hold up, but the flowers are so pretty!

Never heard of that one. One of the "Secret" series from TN I presume. I like it.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

Yes, there are 9 now. Secret Affair, Secret Love, and Secert Glow are the 3 new ones. I like them all, but Secret Pride sometime does not seem that double. My plants may just not be mature enough or they may just be duds.

Or they could just be Terra Nova. Whistling

I have not had the problems with Terra Nova plants that are mentioned here. The Pink Poodles I got earlier in the season from them look like 2-3 year old plants already. The MamaMias are close behind.

Consider yourself one of the lucky ones then. TN has developed a bad reputation here as you have noticed. I'm glad that your plants are doing well for you. It's too bad that they don't deliver as promised. I'd love to get the kind of growth and beauty from all of their plants that I have or have had but that's not the case.

I am glade that I am not the only one who has luck with Terra Nova plants. But it seems they do better up north then the real hot areas. I will take them any day of the week over Big Sky plants.

I consider where I am at extremely hot, it is zone 7 here, but it is very hot. We have had few days below 90 degrees and many right around 100. I lived in the Los Angeles area most of my life, and 9 months in Atlanta.

It does not seems much cooler here in the summer than Atlanta. Misery compared to California where it always cools down at night.

I am going to snip all my blooms today on the plugs and will photograph any that I did not post.

Let me guess...one bloom stalk and not many branches at the crown...Terra Nova.

This is the only wimpy one so far. But the ones I cut the flower on are spreading out a bit more.

The only other one I think is a little weak is Hope, the rest (12 varities) I got from TN are really bulky plants.

I have lost a lot of the plugs and even most I bought from Great Garden Plants last year Grumbling . I like the light pink, but they are hard to get going it seems. I know someoe who has 6 and they are fantastic, I need to ask what they did or if they bought 1 gallon big plants.

Pretty color but the plant looks small to be a year old. Is this supposed to be small?

Nice color. I just wish they were better growers. I don't know what Terra Nova does wrong, but they are lacking something in their Echinaceas.

Sorry, Bob. I didn't even realize that.

NJ Bob, I do like the Secret Glow. I am going to have to watch for it in the future. It's a yellow double.

I wonder if it will stay yellow a while before it fades out to white?
