LorettaNJ, sometimes to get what you want you just have to pay to get it. Save the seeds from your plants and get some more started. Your plants are pretty colors and very healthy looking.


I'm also guessing that the cost of living is, which includes the cost of plants, more expensive than it is here in central Missouri.


For me at least, the Cheyenne Spirit coneflowers makes it hard for me to justify buying any hybrid coneflowers unless they are doubles or selling really cheap. Now if someone would figure out some doubles that can be grown from seed.

It's a deep red. I'm not sure which variety it is from your picture. You can't go wrong with any coneflower.

Hi, Bonnie.

The first coneflowers that I started with about 12 years ago, were the regular purple and white coneflowers. They still come back every year and I still really like them. I am now getting quite a few Cheyenne Spirit coneflowers kind of mixed in with them and few of the hybrid coneflowers. These are planted in the ground. The hybrid coneflowers I mostly plant in two block planters.

Cheyenne Spirit is hard to beat for the money especially if you can pick the color. Unless you wait until summer most won't be blooming. I have been lucky enough to get a lot of great colors and not many duplicates buying early and not being able to select the color. Until this year I had never seen a red Cheyenne Spirit yet I got 2.
@VICKI, I think that some nurseries have caught on to the popularity of this variety and are raising prices to take advantage of it.

Came from a co-op labeled as Cheyenne Spirit. Starts out orange and matures to red. These photographs are all from this year of the same plant.

3 shades and shapes of orange. Cheyenne Spirit is a fascinating variety. Add this to the quilled Cheyenne Spirit that I have and you will understand why it's so fascinating and my personal favorite.

I agree

There are bigger, more showy varieties but for the money you simply can't beat it.

Like I said, sellers are taking advantage of the popularity of Cheyenne Spirit They cost less to grow and sell because of no ppaf meaning free thus higher profit margin. Cheyenne Spirit is a seed variety and anyone can propagate them Too bad that many buyers are paying so much.

Loretta at Home Depot you can get the CS for $7.98 . But I agree that the regular garden centers are charging the same prices as the tissue culture plants.

This Cheyenne Spirit plants blooms are well over a week old and still look good. CS holds color for a long time. They're a bit faded but not white like Cleopatra. As if you needed another reason to love CS. Thumb of 2015-07-11/Snapshot/ff3d08

The yellow is CS as well. More like Mac and Cheese yellow. I like how your yellow get the big cone and point downward.
