if this is Cleopatra, very disappointed wih color. New blooms are not a bright strong yellow more a pale yellow. I tip my hat to you. Thank You!

Some of the web photos show it pale like this photo. Most are brighter and have some quilling(?) in the petals. Might just be natural variation that shows up depending on the growing location?
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

The color on Cleopatra has been a big disappointment , opens yellow and turns white right away. This is happening to everyone I know who bought it.

I have a NOID that looks the same and I agree with every sentiment. It doesn't look so bad in a grouping but on its own it fails. The yellow fades very rapidly. Definitely not a stand alone.

Photo's of Coneflower (Echinacea 'Cleopatra') in the database show only the bright yellow; we could use some of y'alls pretty photo's too, showing the paler shade.
