Below is most of my new "adds" to my garden this year.

Here is the Supposed Salsa Red Coneflower.


Here is my Sombrero Sandy Yellow Echinacea


Next is a Penta...I do not know the color yet..



and then here is what I put in the pot that is on my front porch:

Now here is my already established perennials

Here is my miniature Butterfly Bush. I am pretty sure it is as big as it will ever get....
in the backround is my Double Delight Coneflower.


Here is my White Swan Coneflower:


here is my Tangerine Dream Echinacea


I need to take a photo of my "Green Envy" Echinacea...mind you the flowers are only green when the petals are only like 1/2 an inch or so long. Then they turn pink....

OK everyone..here are some more photos:

first here is what is supposed to be a Green Envy Echinacea: (NO picture of a Green Envy that can find ever looks like the second photo...and the only time when they're totally green is when the petals of this plant (& it's siblings) are first emerging...any opinions ?????
the first & the second plant are the same flower in different stages---

Very pretty.

It is a green one, that's how they form....just at the tips. I read that the older the plant, it seems the more pink you get. In fact I have one from the seeds you sent me years ago. It took years to grow large enough to bloom, last year I had three flowers the same as yours. grin

YAY for the flowers I sent finally blooming. To be honest I had forgotten I sent them---I guess let the seeds fall & see if they can grow more. They are my tallest flowers---mine are well over 3 ft tall.

I love your little 2 yr old bloom...he is sure growing fast !!!

Your flowers are so pretty. I just love coneflowers. Ginger has a bunch at her new house. Mine gave up the ghost so I'll be getting some seeds from her I hope.

Sheri:early next spring, go to Ginger's house & get a few small coneflower plants.... plant those & care for them until you know they are established. The seeds are a good idea, but this also works...

I have a bunch that plant N Pots sent me from years ago. Only thing is plant different colors away form each other---She sent me white & pink---all of mine form her are now pink, as I planted them next to each other......

That is our cat, Stormy, who showed up in the pouring rain when she was so tiny she fit in Johnny's hand. We thought her mother would come back for her but no mother showed up and she's been with us 3 or 4 years now. She's called calico color.
