That one has a lot of red to it. Is it a particular cultivar?
I've grown 3 or 4 cultivars, but I think they cross pollinated, and now I just have a mix--mostly magenta.
Haven't had any bunny problems. Maybe there are enough other good things for them to eat in my garden. Hilarious!

Trust me, they munched through my Cheyenne Spirit within a week of purchase…and I had bought 6 or 7 nice plants as well as lots of other varieties… a waste of money, sadly.

I will have to watch it then, I have 6 or so Echinacea plants, not one has been touched in years by the bunnies. Maybe cause they like my Lilies better..LOL Crossing Fingers!
