Tok some pics of echies not mine the other day.

Appleton, WI(Zone 5a)

Not sure of the names for sure of any of these.

This one has darker stems like After Midnight or Fatal Attraction, but is pretty tall - I certainly would have took it home.

Very pretty!!! There are so many shapes and forms and colours to them. Great shots!

Lower Hudson Valley, NY(Zone 6b)

Very nice Al. I like the little Ladybug on Vintage.

Southeast, MA(Zone 6b)

These are really nice Al. I like the first one too, I hope you can find out the names.

Vicksburg, MS(Zone 8a)

bigcityal,
Your shots Nos. 3 and 4 sure look like one I got by accident last year. Bought two as regular purple cone flowers and one turned out to look like the ones in your picture. I let it self-seed this year (first year it flowered) and it still has some seed heads on it--would you like some?

Divernon, IL(Zone 5b)

bigcityal -
Thought of you when we saw the Echinacea in the Missoui Botanical Gardens last weekin. Unfortunately they were well past their prime but still retained a few blooms.

Those still look fine, must have been new this year. I sure hope my Rasberry Tart looks more like that one next year.
