My one tiki torch that i had for years got attached by some tunneling caterpillar.. then aphids got it from the base without me seeing until it was too late and the whole plant wilted. So i bought a small plant last fall and it has filled in nicely this year. This is the first bloom.

This one is coming out really nice. I have it in the side of the echinacea bed that gets shaded first in the evening... this seems to help it from fading

That is beautiful. I bought 2 'Tiki Torch' over the years but, sadly they both died. You must have just the right place for it.

I like the color, but this cultivar is very short lived. People need to be informed before spending so much for a very weak plant. These cost so much and give so little.

I just got my Cheyenne Spirit seeds! I have seen some photos of them a friend grew. They are a very good mix of bright colors. There is no need to buy expensive mutants now for yellow, orange, or red.

A friend ordered some from overseas and sent me two packets. She got them from Plants of Distinction.
