Echibeckia:  Intergeneric Cross

By springcolor

"Loves me, loves me not": When I was a teenager, this was a favorite game to tell me whether the current boyfriend loved me. You pulled the flower petals off the flower head and the last one told you the verdict. Daisy-like flowers have changed over the years. The latest plant trend is intergeneric crosses.

Just a follow up on the Echibeckia and the hardness. I'm in zone 7b and the plants didn't survive the winter even though we had a milder winter than usual. . Nursery where I bought mine is doing a bunch of backpedaling. Thumbs down Oh well, just wanted to get the information out there. I'm sure if you are in zone 9 and higher these will be perennial for you. My feelings are not publishable, just wish the breeders would test plants before making claims and using the public as a testing field.
