Picked this small guy up at a Menards last month in a quart pot. It's only 8ins tall right now and this bloom is small as well. Nice none the less.

That is another cute one. You were lucky in finding that one at Menards.

I was in a Menards yesterday and they did not have one single coneflower. Lowe's had the PowWow Wild Berry, White PowWow, and Prarie Splendor..

I saw this one today and was impressed with the amount of flowers on a small plant.
Falls in the another pink category , other then the small size.
Nevermore how did yours do?

Hopefully it's the Santa Rosa Garden's web site that is down right now, for I can't get the site to come up.

It just dawned on me that Butterfly Kisses is one Santa Rosa Gardens has for sale. I've passed on it all season for in the Santa Rosa Garden's picture it looks a dark dull lavender color. Nevermore44, your Butterfly Kisses coneflower is a good color.

The ones I saw were a nice pastel pink.

Definitely pink, not lavender. I'm having a terrible time with mites on mine this year.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

I do not know why , but the mites seem to go after or do more damage to the AB Cultivar plants then others.

No the DS are from an other grower. I get them on Hot Papaya - Pink Double Delight and Guava ice. I only tried one DS Raspberry and it always looked like a sickly plant. It was not a special color so I never retried. If I ever see Orangeberry I might give it a try.

Bubblegum is pretty without mites. I have two plants.

It is a nice pink , but if I get another pink it will be Gumdrop, should have bought it when I saw it last year. It really stood out from the others.

I have way too many pinks now so I'm unlikely to buy any more pinks either single or double. My favorite double pink is Southern Belle.

Ended up getting one as a free plant with an order, nice small front of the garden plant.
