Would like to hear of hybrid Echinaceas
I only have the purple and the white cone flowers currently and would like to make a bed of the beautiful colors and types I am seeing in catalogues.
My current ones are covering a steep hill and the finches come and blanket the seed heads in the fall -- just beautiful. If I intersperse some of the hybrid ones in this bed will the species ones overtake them in time? If so, I will make a new bed for the new ones I order.
I am in Z5. What are your experiences with these? What varieties do you suggest. What about the double ones?
