Year 2 for this coneflower in my zone 4 garden and it is blooming nicely. The color is amazing- salmony pink-I have no other flower even close to this color. Looks very pretty next to purple campanulas. The plant has lots of blooms and is a nice size and shape. I have ordered two more of these!

I planted one of these last year. It was a bad year for coneflowers in Minnesota - aster yellows were rampant. I think this one escaped, and it's blooming nicely this summer. It did get bigger and more sprawley than I expected, however, and I may have to move it in the fall, but it is very pretty.
