Echinacea

echinacea

A friend ordered an Echinacea collection for me.

4 small plants, which arrived in the Spring

They didn’t have any labels –

But I think the collection was E.Sunrise, E. Doubledecker, E. Kims Knee High, E. Sunset.

One plant died

Every morning I rush out to check the progress of the flowers

And see if I can work out which one is which!

(I decided this one is probably Kim’s knee high).

    My first thought was that she was gliding smoothly and graciously up to the sky to find the sun. (You know, that big ball of yellow that we see in the sky occationally). Which ever one she is, she’s stunning.

  6. Beautiful! I planted ‘after midnight’, ‘green envy’, and ‘summer sky’ this year. Your photo proves Echinaceas are the best! 🙂
