Anyone growing Echinacea 'Mama Mia' ?

I just ordered 'Mama Mia', what are your thoughts on this one? I've only seen pictures but it looks pretty. Echinaceas have become another addiction of mine but my collection is always changing, having a small garden I have to be selective :(.

Bought 'Pow Wow Wild Berry' this spring so far I'm loving it.

I'm not buying any of the new Echinacea plants this year. I'm holding out for the Cheyenne Spirit seed variety. The pictures are amazing. Seed grown plants are so tough too. They also created the Pow Wow seeds so it looks good! I can't wait to get those seeds this fall!

I can't wait to see your photos of it though!

i came across a small garden store selling them. The flowers looked great... nice two tone... but many only had the single stem coming out of the grown with the all the branches come from that single stem. These types don't make it through the winter here. I did see a few with okay basal branching.. so i might try and get one on sale in the fall.

I have about a hundred plants of the 'Cheyenne Spirit' with buds. Will post pics if they are any good.

They were only distributing 100 seeds to the industry this spring to trial.
