Always wanted to try another one , but you are right you never see them. The first one I had was a strange plant never even reached a foot tall.

Flame Thrower is available from GHS for $13 but I bought mine locally. If I can get another one cheap I'll do it.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

Love those. My second year Flame Throwers are still small. Hopefully next year they will explode.

I had mine for a few years , but it never even reached a foot tall. Lost it when I tried to move it to the front of garden.

Nevermore44, your Flame Throwers and Tangerine Dreams look good planted together.


I purchased two Flame Throwers last year. One overwintered and one didn't.

It is on my most wanted list. Not a fan of growing Echies from plugs unless I can get them very early in the Season and she did not get them till mid June.

I got mine in may but they're not growing well. It's not worth the money to buy plugs and I won't bother next time.

Yes, I tried the plugs a couple of years ago on another coop, probably Ella. They all lived and grew except only Tomato Soup overwintered. That said, I don't have any better success with large plants overwintering either. For a while, the plugs didn't make sense anymore when you can get large healthy plants for about the same price in the fall sales. But now, some plants have about doubled in price so I am trying plugs again this year. Also, a lot of the nurseries have cut back on the variety they use to offer. The plugs I got in May are starting to bloom.

Mine are struggling to live. What do you feed yours? I didn't feed mine the first month then I gave them fish emulsion. One died in a week and the leaf tips on the others are crisp brown.

Well, I don't want to say before I go and double check them in the morning. I received a May shipment and just received the June plants last week.

Loretta I would very much recommend not letting any of your plugs flower . I find that even 4 inch pot size Echinacea do not overwinter if I let them flower their first year. Also my luck with Fall planting has had very poor results. The plants are more expensive but for me buying 1 gallon plants and getting them in the ground before Aug. has given me good results. The one garden center here brings in over 30 kinds each year so I usually have a good selection to choose from.
