I absolutely love Cheyenne Spirit and here's why. Just look at the colors, sizes and shapes of it. My favorite echie.

There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

I bought 3 new plants and got 2 different shades of red and a quilled variety which I didn't know existed. At first I thought it was one bloom but they're all that way. A bonus. Hurray! It is a good year for flowers.

I captured this lovely picture of one of my Cheyenne Spirit plants this morning. It just begged to be photographed. Hilarious!

Thanks. Bob. The light was changing by the minute and I had to grab this with my phone. There wasn't time to get my camera.

Thanks. It has become my favorite echinacea. There are many varieties that I have grown but this is the best of all. It isn't too tall or too short and it returns in the spring.

I know what you mean. I saw a display of them at a local nursery last year. They had all different colors, all beautiful, not too tall but stocky and the same size. And they were only $10 which was cheaper than the others.

$10 may be reasonable prices for New Jersey but it seems a bit high unless you can pick the color and they're big plants. I buy quart plants for $5 locally.

I think it was last week, our local Walmart had full size, blooming Cheyenne Spirit plants for $6.99. That this town even had a coneflower plant for sale was remarkable.


Kansas Bob, it is neat that you came upon a quilled one.

Vicki, the quilled Cheyenne Spirit is a big surprise to me. At first I thought it would be one bloom but they're all quilled. I'll save some seeds and see if they are the same.

My favorite one there is the yellow shuttlecock.


Vicki and Bob, $10 is a decent price in NJ these days. I am seeing $20 perennials now at some places. That means the 50% off late season sales is no great deal anymore. We can still get perennials from Lowes and Walmart for your price but they usually aren't as well grown as the privately owned nurseries. I have bad luck with Walmart plants overwintering for some reason. I gave up on them.

Today, I passed by that nurseries and couldn't help but stop by and look at the coneflowers. So... I picked up a couple of Cheyenne Spirit for $14.99 each!!!! But it looks like there are multiple plants in these pots or great basal growth. Some pots had two different colors in them. I don't know if that is good or bad and maybe I'll go back.

What do you think? Was I ripped off? There is a Yellow with a green eye I want to go back and get. And a nice Flame Thrower.

Mine are all older varieties and I don't know their names. Just a lovely white one, and two different colors of the traditional pink/magenta ones. I do like the Cheyenne Spirit however.

Very nice plants for $10 but $15 for Cheyenne Spirit? If you are happy with the price then that's all that matters. Too high for me though. But the plants look great.

Lol! I think there was only one! Should I say? It would stink if you went all the way there and it was Tiki Torch instead. *Blush*
There is Flame Thrower at Condurso's in Montville mixed in with another variety. I think it was 14.99 and I can't remember how leafy it was but the flowers were pretty.

That is a place I have not been in a long time. I will have to try to remember them for next year, right now to many projects going on to take a trip.

Obviously they weren't very good as you took the $15 ones. Probably a good idea. If you don't have Cheyenne Spirit you're going to enjoy these. Congratulations on your new additions. Hurray!
