Pink Double Delight is a beautiful little ech. Shorter than many others, it stands up much better than my taller echs, which get knocked over in storms. This little beauty has never needed staking in the two years that I have had it in my zone 6 yard. (Many of my taller echs do require plant supports.)

Hi,
I am very new on here. I was wondering if I could get some seed from this plant from you. I don't know if I have anything to trade yet, but I am willing to pay. :O}

Hi TiaLee, and welcome to ATP!

About seeds, Pink Double Delight is propagated vegetatively, not from seeds. I'm not even sure if it sets viable seeds.? Have you tried seeds from these before? From what I've read, most of the echinacea hybrids, if they set viable seeds at all, will produce regular purple coneflowers.

I've never tried them from seeds...

Thanks Karen,
I was afraid of that! I have never seen it around here, but maybe someday...

My pink double delight got aster yellows. It's gone. Sad

Good to know! Thanks!
For some reason, I am that one person who cannot seem to get echinacea to thrive, except for two Nora Barlows which I really don't like....
Sounds like the Double Delight would be wasted on me!

I had that one for probably 5 years, and it was a favorite. No reflection on the plant that it got eaten by a leafhopper Shrug! I lost another purple one as well.
