Would love to see some images of everyone's Julias. Here are a few of my first blooms. The last one has an amazing center fade to purple. Thumb of 2013-06-29/coneflower620/129211

Mine are still too immature and it will be a few weeks yet before I see any blooms. I like the orange and am anxious to compare it to Tiki Torch and Sundown.

Thanks Nevermore, they seem to be fading a little to where the purple in more pronounced. I will try to get a shot of the faded look. Here is another newer one. Thumb of 2013-07-02/coneflower620/28eb04

Here is the same plant a week later. You can even see where I moved a petal from the middle bloom off of the top bloom and it is more orange there.

Those look a lot like one of my Cheyenne Spirit plants right now.

I was hoping this one would hold color for more then a week. An orange should do better then that.. I noticed at work that the lighter colored orange Cheyenne Spirits go purple fairly quickly. On some of them the first few flowers opened a light orange and they were followed with ones that opened purple. I have only seen a color change of blooms like that on one other plant A Hot Coral I had , the first 2 flowers were pink and after that they started to open orange.

I do like the color it fades to though. The flowers are amazingly large too for such a young plant. Great shape too.

Just another update of Julia. Still can't believe the size of blooms on such a small plant.

It's going to be hard to sell these for such high prices with the Cheyenne Spirit seeds available!

Well, I've already bought two and did so prior to buying CS. They aren't blooming yet but the plants look good. I also bought 3 Cleopatra which one has bloomed and didn't look good at all. Nothing like it is pictured to look. Thankfully I paid $7 each and not $12 which some are charging so if they aren't satisfactory by next year I can replace them with CS. I agree with you, Clint.

I will say that the CS line has more compact petals (from the ones i have seen and own).... which is nice.. but I like the larger more open forms of flowers....

Some of my Cheyenne Spirit have small blooms and some have large. I like that there are so many different forms of them. They do have many more blooms than this Julia. A first year Cheyenne Spirit from seeds can have 20 or more blooms.

My Julia haven't even bloomed yet and I don't know if either of them will this year. On the other hand almost all of my CS have bloomed and are going to bloom again. I too have seen different sizes and shapes of petals on mine. Some are compact and some are small. Some are golden, some are salmon and yet others are bright orange equal to or better than any other orange I've grown. I'm disappointed in the "Butterfly" series so far unless Julia produces something spectacular. Cleopatra is a huge letdown, not even yellow but a pale or creamy yellow. Hopefully that will change in subsequent blossoms as I have two other Cleopatra, one of which has a bud on it. I'll know soon if it's a keeper or a waste of money.

I saw on their Facebook page that even her Cleopatra looked white. I wasn't impressed at all. They should have never put those out.

I wish I'd seen one before I bought 3 of them.

Second round of flowers on Cleopatra have opened a brighter yellow then first few, hoping they hold color more then a few days like the first ones did. Julia shows no sign that it will bloom this year.

IMHO the Julia has one of my favorite shaped blooms of any coneflower. My Julia's are growing well now with some of them with many large blooms (almost too many and too large for small plant) or new blooms coming. They are very floweriffic.

If they overwinter, I think they will be tremendous plants. They do fade a bit but not too quick. The color is identical to my dark orange CS.

Very pretty. Please let us know how long it takes the blooms to fade. I'd love to see them in a few days if you can post an updated photo. If they fade up there, they would really fade quickly down here. I tip my hat to you.
