This is the second year for this plant. It is really doing some weird things. Has anyone that owns this plant or other Echinacea seen or had this happen before? Most every flower on the plant is growing like this. Thanks for any replies!

Aster yellows is why I don't grow coneflowers. Leafhoppers abound here and spread the disease. It's sad because I really like the flowers.

This is the first time I have ever had this happen. I have had various varieties of Coneflower for several years and never an issue. It is only on the one variety.

Thats a nice information. My first though it just natural mutation or oddity. And i will for sure will buy the plants if i saw it in nursery D'Oh! since i love weird and unique plants Rolling on the floor laughing

Never though that disease or micoorgnism can caused that...
