Echinacea purpurea which I grew from seed.
This plant is just so photogenic, and I love it.
Another Echinacea without a label!
This is the first time this one has flowered, as I bought it as a plug plant at the end of last year.
I am so enamoured with Echinacea, that I have ordered some more plug plants for next year.
Who can resist names like “Hot Papaya”, “Tiki Torch” and “Tomato Soup”
I certainly can’t!
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).
