Wow, these grow alongside the road here...the little writeup says the seeds would be inferior to the parent, are you wanting the seeds or would a plant be preferable? I will stop and see if I can dig up one of these. There are so many wildflowers that grow alongside the road here, but I am always afraid to get any because I figure they are probably endangered and we can't wild harvest them, like Asclepias.
I think this is getting a little confused!! Seedlady posted that she WANTS echinacea paradoxa. She doesn't HAVE it to share. Sorry seedlady. I didn't mean to twist your post around to confuse everyone.
joydie1 I'll be glad to share what I have when they're ready. Wish I had the echinacea paradoxa too ... but I don't.

isnt the one you last posted seedlady a yellow coneflower? I have seeds for yellow clasping coneflower...I also have a yellow mexican hat...black eyed susan...and indian summer...havent seen an orange one yet.
I think he means the "Tiki Torch" coneflower?? Also somewhat orange is "Sundown" and "Sunset".
If you want some paradoxa or palladia for a good price check out www.seedsofchange.com.
I got a good qty for a few dollars!! I can't wait to plant them and see what I get. I am a coneflower LOVER and I've not been happy with my Sundown plants at all. They've been pretty weak and I've lost almost all of them. My Harvest Moon are still rocking though.
Anyone else have issues with their new breed of Coneflowers??
I have the echinacae paradoxa, we call them black eyed susan's here, so had to look at the picture, but I have a bunch of them if any one wants seeds, let me know. And I have some orange cone flower's or mexican hats, this is the name that they are called here. They have orange pedals that slant back wards toward the stem and the center is like a 10 gallon hat and black, they are a small flower. If any one would like some of the seeds off this I have a few. I'm new to knowing the naming of the flowers. I would put some pictures on but don't know how. Thanks Susan
Susan, I would love some of your Mexican's Hats. I also have tons and I mean tons of Rudbeckia seeds (black eyed Susan's) if anyone would like some. I literally give away about 100 plants of this each year so if anyone want plants in the spring please send me a dmail and I can put you on the list. Susan, I have White Swan seeds I could send to you for the mexican hats.
That would be great. Are you in the address exchange? I'll save you some seeds when they set them. I also have a yellow one that came up, if you would like some seeds from it I'll send them too. I also have New Mexico Sunflower's if you would like some seeds from them. Thanks Susan
