DOUBLE DECKER- just bought a while back... looks like it should be fully "double"

GREEN JEWEL- The shot is a little blown out.. but you can see it is a strong plant. The petals aren't a dark green like an earlier post. Large flowers too.

SUNSET (???)- I grabbed a few of these last year on the sale racks. They came back well. Some nice flowers. Some are quilled. The color fades to a pale pink after a week.

Wow! That's beauuuuutiful!

I am in tears - I pulled so many coneflowers last year and now this spring from disease! These are just beautiful!

I love your Pixie Meadowbrite. It looks so much like some of my Tennessee Coneflowers. I really can't tell the difference. I wonder if there is much difference at all. Hmmm.

The plant that is the most interesting to me is your Double Decker. It looks like it's going to be a very pretty double bloom but not a double decker. I think that plant would be awesome to have! I think you could sell those. Seriously. I think it's a bloom form I have only seen one other time. There is a white double called "Amazing Snowfall" that looks a like the same type of bloom.

I think your first plant labeled "Green Envy" might actually be "Green Jewel." The second one looks more like "Green Envy" to me.

I love your collection. I'm getting ready to start a new coneflower bed to put some new ones in since I've run out of room. LOL. I don't know what I'm going to do if they keep releasing new plants that I can't resist!

Those photos are just incredible nevermore. Made my jaw drop quite a few times. Agree with the maniac that the first Green Envy is Green Jewel. I have a feeling you already know that, and just flipped the "Green" names in your head. I've done that before. Whatever that "Double Decker" is...I want one just like it. It's great. Sorry you had to pull so many NDFarmgirl. What a real bummer. Are you going to replace them?

The Cass County Extension office looked at my picture and I told him I've had it 2 years in a row now. It was in 3 different beds. He told me to give it a year or two before planting coneflowers there and try to break the cycle. I think I'll just try a new area next year. :(

That sounds like a good idea.

Hamilton, OH

Thanks all.

I updated the Green Jewel thing.. my mistake.

The pixie medow i think is a tenn cross and then back crossed... it does looks like a pure tenn though to me. It's quite a furry plant.

The double decker i just picked up a while ago in a quart pot. It does look like it is going to be a full fluffy bloom.. instead of just the crown portion. I had bought a double decker a year and some ago and it looked normal with a few random petals sticking out the top.. i think i ended up pulling it.

What a breathtaking planting. Coneflowers are so beautiful. I must have missed one of the pictures. What is the name of the pink one on the left that looks like a shooting star, with the petals trailing beneath the cone? I really need one of those.

Hamilton, OH

Those are the pallida echs. They are on their way out though.... bloom wise. I really like them though.

Southeast, MA(Zone 6b)

What a nice collection you have and I like the use of them in the same bed. So much rain and cold here for the past month so except for CL I am still waiting for a bloom although 'Pink Poodle' and 'Merlot' are getting some color finally.

Hi, Nevermore, Love your photos. It's fun to see your whole series of echies to compare and contrast the various types.

I've been out of the loop on coneflowers for a year or so and it's interesting to see the very latest in bloom in your garden. t.

Central, VA(Zone 7b)

Pallida, oh yes I will look for those for sure.

The second one is definitely "Harvest Moon"

Southeast, MA(Zone 6b)

The first one, pale yellow, looks like Big Sky series 'Sunrise'.

Ft Lauderdale, FL(Zone 10a)

That's what I was thinking also ngam
