wow. planted mid-July and it was a smallish plug at the time. really has a nice habit with tall and sturdy stems and abundant branching. no growth stimulants used on it.
Echinacea Southern Belle
That is gorgeous. I just picked one up at 40% off. Your blossom picture is fantastic. Not sure if I should plant-out or hold in a cool greenhouse. Where are you buying plugs?
So sorry about your knee. A you better now?
Sorry to hear about your knee GreenThumbs, That is a fabulous coneflower! Looks like a keeper to me. :))
thanks. i really like this one too. definitely a keeper if it overwinters well.
i think cones do best in the ground for most people as it's a bit of a challenge to grow them in pots. spring color, i would put the plant in the ground or at least set the pot partially in the ground.
sigh, knee is improving but much slower that i would like.
I am glad to hear that you are getting better. I will definitely put this one on my wish list if it overwinters. I put all mine straight in the ground, even the liners and they do very well.
Again, Great picture!!
Keep working on that knee and by spring you will be ready to go. Thats a good idea about the sinking the pot and plant.
It's just upside down, turn your head to the left then keep turning. :)
It's still floppy no matter what direction it's in. The blooms don't look like the marketing images either. The color isn't the intense color promised. I think it's another disappointment.
None of the blooms look like the marketing images. The color is always wrong in real life because we are not touching up photos. The plants here are the real deal, and I like it that way. I did not realize the picture was that old, but still I think it is a pretty good performer if it did all that growing in one year. I would be very interested in seeing it this year. :)
GT, That is very beautiful, looks like a good strong plant. Hope my does as well. :)
