I worked at a garden center this year, out of a shipment of 24, approximately half arrived dead and the rest were in very bad shape,other plants in shipment were fine. The plants that were not tossed out were offered to employees, I ended up with 6, 1 recovered right away had lots of blooms looked good. It was planted in a sunny, and sandy location.
Well the rains finally came, for about 2 days. This morning it is lying on the ground, the roots looks like it had way too much water.
1 left. still in the pot it came in, will have to see how this one progresses.
This plant seems to need a very dry location.

This plant is clearly the best of the short Echinacea's out there. Combines very well with Sporobolus 'Tara' and Amsonia 'Blue Ice'. Very drought tolerant. Does not like a lot of water.

This is a nice short pinkish echinacea. The petals are fairly flat and long lasting. The shorter height makes it better for a front planting.
