I really love the colors on the bloom of this fancy new echinacea. Last spring I planted well over a dozen but unfortunately the plants died over the winter.

Rita, located on the north shore of Nassau County Long Island, NY zone 6/7 where it is humid in the summer.

I wasn't impressed with this plant. It died 2 years after planting.

This plant is very slow to establish and seems to be a weak variety.
