I only have one named echinacea,(Sombrero Salsa Red) it is not blooming yet. But, somehow I have ended up with several different varieties of the purple coneflower, some are tall, some are short, different leaves and blooms, and the butterflies seem to like them all.

I have a lot of morphed ones as well, but I did have several named varieties. Short lived on most. Best ones for longevity for me were the SKY series by the guys here in GA. Summer Sky, Sunrise, Sunset, etc. I got Sombrero Salso Red last fall but somehow I lost the tag and I was planting several others so I have to wait until it blossoms to see which one it is. Oh, I did win three in one of the raffles. They are doing well.
