New Double Echinaceas

bodayJuly 23, 2010

Just checked Terra Novas New for 2010. Counted Five (5) new shades of pink double Echinaceas. My world is now complete. Too much of a good thing, maybe?

I really like them, especially 'Gum Drop' and 'Secret Romance'.

Plants Nouveau also has a new one called 'Raspberry Truffle'. I believe it's the first Double Echinacea with dark stems. I think I prefer it.

'Secret Passion' has not been as exciting as the picture would lead you to believe. I will probably grow the others as well at some point. I'm dropping 'Coral Reef' from my lineup after only one year as it doesn't like to branch as readily as others and 'Hot Papaya' is such a knockout the people gloss over 'Coral Reef'.

Ditto here re 'Coral Reef' and 'Hot Papaya'.

I tried 'Cranberry Cupcake' but found it weak. 'Gum Drop was better.

'Now Cheesier' (not double) was awesome.

Gum Drop is on my want list, it isn't showing up around here yet. And...I love the looks of Secret Romance, such a soft luscious pink.

I do not know if it applies to all Raspberry Truffles, but all the plants I have seen(incl. mine) had weak and somehow twisted stems, requiring support. What are they doing to all these plants???
