Has anyone grown this variety?
I bought a plant last year and have it in a large container. It doesnt seem to have made it thru the winter .I am not patient so might give it another week befor I declare it a gonner.

I am not familiar with this one. I have Butterfly Kisses which is dwarf and it was my very last Echinacea to come back this year, but it did.

That is not one of the ones I have tried. And how large of a container? The only person I know who grows Echinacea in containers uses 20 gallon pots.

Bob it is 18 inches wide.
I think I asked about this plant a few months ago, sorry I forgot about it. Geezer brain in action I guess.
I really thought an echi could withstand the cold but I am more of a mind now that they cant.

All these planters are the same size.

This year more than ever I am finding stuff that I was sure was dead but in reality is just taking much much longer to wake up. There are a few things I pulled out a month ago that I now wish I had just left alone!

Jennifer : I suffer from impatience too. If I had only remembered the planter was in a shadier spot. Now if the plant will just make a nice clump I will be thrilled.

Glade it came back for you. Your Heuchera looks good , mine lost just about all their leaves after a Winter like the one we had.

I thought these were dead! Took them 2 years to come up and I had buried them with newspaper and three inches of mulch, I forgot they were there! (Solomon's Seal)

Bob: Thats an old pix. That heuchera was eaten off the last 2 winters.I am still waiting for it to come back.
I have a few other dark leaved heuchs I can transplant there if needed.
