I have been very impressed with Cheyenne Spirit. I've been growing both the red and the yellow since 2012, and they are without a doubt, the most vigorous Echinacea plants I own. Cheyenne Spirit is the first to leaf out the and the first to bloom. In my garden, the red is a shorter plant than the yellow, but both are great. These plants have lots of blooms with wonderful vibrant color that can be seen from a distance. They bloom a long time too. This variety is really noteworthy in all its characteristics. Highly recommended!
