This has turned out to be a wonderful plant. She dropped off a bit during the summer but is coming on strong with the cooler fall weather. Belle has become or is my favorite pink. She is beautiful.

Very nice pictures of a beautiful flower.


Southern Belle, Hot Papaya, and Leilani, are my favorites right now. I could plant a whole flower bed with a mix of Hot Papaya and Leilani. I had two of the Southern Belles but one did not come back up this summer. I'd like to have a bunch of those planted together.


Kansas Bob, have you tried to save seed from Southern Belle? After all of this rain goes through this area, tomorrow I'm going to have to check to see if my Southern Belle has any seed.

I wonder why Santa Rosa Gardens stopped selling Southern Belle coneflowers? I would think they would be a good seller.

Thanks, Vickie. I can't imagine why Santa Rosa Gardens stopped selling it. Mine is 2 years old and going strong. The color is vivid and the flowers are large. I found it to be a hardy plant that grows well with beautiful blooms. I'll send a message and ask. BTW I have never gotten seeds from a double flower.

I wrote to Santa Rosa Gardens and was told that they are not going to be offering it again as it wasn't a big seller and their plug grower may have had cultural issues. It's available from Jung Seeds for $10.95 though but I don't know where else. It doesn't seem widely available. Santa Rosa Gardens new catalog will be online in November and the only new Echinacea is Orange Skipper. If it's like Julia and Cleopatra then I don't want it.

Some of Santa Rosa Gardens' pictures that they use to sell their coneflowers are not the greatest. Maybe that's why Southern Belle didn't sell.

Kansas Bob, from the link you provided, Orange Skipper doesn't look that different than the Cheyenne Spirit coneflowers.


If my Southern Belle overwinters, I may have to purchase another one or two next spring. (I am going to have to make another flower bed--more work to make it and maintain it.)

Thanks for checking with Santa Rosa Gardens.

I went back and googled and found that Garden Harvest Supply had them. Maybe they'll have Southern Belle again and have a sale.

Kansas Bob, did you send Santa Rosa Gardens a picture of your Southern Belle?

Vicki, no I didn't. I've sent pictures to them before without them being used. I did send my Google + album link to Garden Harvest Supply but I haven't heard back yet. They have used several of my pictures before so they might use some of these. They have great plants but their shipping cost is high. I haven't ordered from Jung Seeds before. Those are the only sources that I can find.

Their shipping charges are reasonable but the selection is small.

I'd like to have a dozen of SB. This is a great double pink and I think that it would be spectacular en masse. Like I mentioned, this is 2 years old and it survived a nasty winter in which I lost a lot of plants. I sent a "wish" list to Garden Harvest Supply for next season. Most of them are Arie Blom and van Noort varieties that are not readily available elsewhere. Even if they were only able to get a few I'd be happy and willing to buy some. Santa Rosa Gardens are only getting 1 new variety.

My favorite pink! She is a delightful variety and perhaps the best double pink. Beautiful flowers and very reliable.

One of two late flower on one of Mamajack's plugs. I picked it and now it's in a vase.

Looks good to me. Belle is my favorite double pink hands down. If I could have a dozen of it I'd be thrilled. Leilani is a beautiful yellow but mine failed 2x and I won't try again.
