Hello fellow growers of coneflowers and daisies!!

I'm looking for some articles to run for the first week in August regardening some of our favorite plants.

@clintbrown Clint- maybe you could do a write-up about some of the new varieties, and how they seem to be short lived?

@springcolor- maybe you could spread some info on the new Echibeckias?

How about covering Daisies? What could the topic be? Any volunteers?

How about an inspiration piece on using these flowers as cut flowers indoors?


Anyone have a specific question they would like to see answered with an article?

Any other ideas?

I'm all ears!

I was looking into the database at those new Echibeckias and I find them to be fascinating. @springcolor - if you're not going to do an article, please let me know and I'll put my research into an article.

Yes I'm working on an article and should have it finished tomorrow night. Have pictures and some of my observations of the plants.
