akhart - did you receive any feedback yet? I emailed them and told them I was thinking of getting one, but had a friend who was not happy with what they received and this is what I got today.
Dear Gardening Friend,
Thank you for your recent correspondence. Early spring
size can vary, Coneflower is slow to emerge in the spring
. Most Coneflowers at this early date have minimal top growth. However, our production team is currently evaluating the root system to determine if we need to delay shipments until the plant
develops a stronger root system. We recently were informed by a customer who was disappointed with the size and root system and we are evaluating them due to this finding. We appreciate customer feedback and take it very seriously. If you ordered a Coneflower from us and are not happy, we will gladly replace the plant
or refund your money back to you. We guarantee 100% satisfaction, so I hope that your friend will contact us as well. Please let me know if there is anything else we can do for you.

I also emailed 2 other companies who have them and they said the same thing, that they will not be shipping them out until later in the summer when they are more established.
