Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral mt_horeb_garden On Jun 6, 2007, mt_horeb_garden from Mount Horeb, WI wrote:

This past winter was my first winter with this plant, and I was sure it did not make it until a couple of weeks ago. I was a bit reluctant to purchase, as my other Meadowbrite purchase (Orange, Art's Pride) did not make the winter several years back. I have eight other varieties of coneflower in my garden and they are all thriving and budding out. This plant is about 3 inches tall currently, and I am not sure if it even looks strong enough to bloom. I am giving it a neutral only because it may catch up, but I am not hopeful.

Just like my comment on the Art's Pride (Orange) Meadowbrite, this is a weedier version of a standard echinacea, but an excellent rebloomer and comes back bigger each year. I love the "mango" blooms, though they're a bit more yellow and less gold in my soil. It's a great match with the orange variety.

As with Art's Pride ,I purchased this plant this year and have not overwintered it yet - so the nuetral rating. This plant was slow to come on, but was doing great by late fall.

Lovely mango color, much paler than the orange meadowbrite 'Art's Pride'. Another of the introductions from the Chicago Botanical Garden. *Jim Ault)Slightly fragrant. Open branching structure, rough narrow leaves.
My plant was just established this summer so hardiness in my zone is still uncertain.
