Echinacea purpurea which I grew from seed.

This plant is just so photogenic, and I love it.

Echinacea – again!


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).
