Is this a common trait for Marmalade? The flower is badly misshapen.

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

Not positive but I think it is mite damage which seems to affect Marmalade and Hot Papaya more then others.

Sounds like it's Neem time.

Kansas Bob, I actually looked at my coneflowers yesterday as I was mowing. I think I have a couple of Marmalades that look like yours.

I used Neem oil in the greenhouse this winter and it is good stuff. The previous two years I had a whitefly problem in the greenhouse. This winter I used Neem oil quite often and didn't have any whiteflies. Actually yesterday I just brought in the squirt bottle to mix up some more of it. I'll have to try it on the blossoms of the Marmalade.

I love it. Great shape and color plus it photographs beautifully. My only gripe is that like Hot Papaya it's lanky and floppy in the wind.

True but both are worth the trouble. Lost Hot Papaya this past Winter, have to get another.

I have at least 8 Hot Papaya, it's my all time favorite. The color is outstanding and lasts a long time.

One of my local nursery "outlets" sells it in quarts for $8. Next spring I'll buy a couple for you if you'd like for me too. Just let me know.

Send a c-mail to me if you decide that you want me to grab a couple for you.
