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.)

This echinicea has performed reliably in my zone 5 garden for several years. It's shorter than many of the other echinaceas, so can easily be used toward the front of a border. If kept deadheaded, it blooms for a good portion of our summer. Mine has been a fairly slow grower--doesn't take over the garden too quickly.
