Gardeners' Notes:

I was intrigued by the photos of this unusual coneflower, so I decided this spring to place one near my front door where I could hopefully enjoy it. As a first year plant it has exceeded my expectations. It has produced several large pretty blooms that last forever. It has shown no ill effects from this year's horrendously hot Missouri summer, even though it receives almost full direct sun and has not been babied in the water department. Height is as advertised - about 18 " this year. I can't wait to see how it does year 2!

I bought four of these from a local nursery early last summer. They bloomed straight through till frost. The color is positively gorgeous - they seem to glow in their part shade location. I'd love to have more of them. Not as tall as some Echinaceas, mine only reached about 18" high. They're back this year and looking great, about to bloom any day now.
