I bought 4 new coneflowers at Home Depot this week and they are all from the same vendor, and all have the same generic tag that just says coneflower.
This is maddening!!!

Can anyone identify any of these - there are too many that look similar when doing a google image search.
So frustrating! There are 3 different plants here - an orange, a yellow, and a cheesey orange/yellow.

Got this one at a different HD yesterday - same tag.
They were not in terrific condition, but this is the only full flowerhead.

And this is the new forming flower head on the same plant.

you are right about the top 3---I could get you a list ??---I will say that I do think the orange one NOT is a Tangerine Dream--I have that and mine is a different color of Orange.

But: The pink is most likley a Double Delight. Guava Ice looks to be the same color but the blooms are something like 4 inches across.

The last one--is either a Green Envy in its early stages of blooming OR it could well be a Green Jewel.
If the petals fill out & turn pink then it is the Green Envy--

here is a link--it has several varieties to possibley help you-

Carol - you misread my last picture - it is the young flower of the one above it - same plant.

Thanks for posting the link - it's a toss up between Guava Ice and Secret Desire. The main difference between the size is the petals underneath. I will see how the fresher flowers unfold and decided then.

I think the cheesey orange one could be Harvest Moon - thought so last night as well. The orange one could be Summer Sun. Don't see any that looks like the lighter yellow.

this one looks like Gauva ice,, I like it!,, Don't know what the others are,, Maybe the first one on the left in your first picture, Sunset?? Looks a lot like it. Harvest moon is one I've had,, it was a darker deeper golden color, Not sure any of them are harvest moon.
