Echies on steroids! One month makes a big difference!

Most of us agree that Pink DD, Meringue, and Coco Lime are prolific bloomers. I have previously mentioned to you guys I bought gallon-sized containers of these plants from Lowe's about a month ago. Well, here's some comparison shots from a month ago then till late yesterday afternoon.

Starting with Pink DD:

And Meringue:

There's no sign of stopping. More tiny bloom stalks are on the way on all three.

This Doppelganger got but 2 blooms last month. This is a 2nd year plant and I'm patiently waiting for a double deck. Looks like it's going to happen.

Yeah Maniac, even the PDD plugs I started mid-spring got several blooms now. I wish and I'm hoping my Coral Reefs will be as vigorous as these three.

Nice photos. I underestimated the Double Decker. For some reason I thought that was the most bizarre thing I've ever seen just from looking at photos of it. Now, I'm starting to think it's kind of interesting and unique.

Lovely pics of lovely blooms. I have also noticed since the sun has shown up for more than one day in a row and the temps have turned more towards the summer averages that all my echinacea are growing faster and looking much prettier. Your 'Sunrise' is very nice as well.

I am so happy finally found Pink Double Delight at a nursery yesterday for $12.99. The plant looks very healthy and is blooming seems like a fair price for the plant. Will plant it in my garden today and enjoy this beauty.

These are still the top performers of all the new varieties for me. I would also add Razzmatazz to the list. It's nice and tall and would look good in the back of these!
