I planted some coneflower seeds in spring in this area. Just not sure if these are coneflower seedlings. I heard they are difficult to germinate. The leaves look very similar and have the same texture.

RE: Coneflower?

Yes they are! Nice job!

RE: Coneflower?

Yes, the seedlings too. But the middle flower appears infected with virus, so does the flower on the left.

RE: Coneflower?

The virus is either Aster Yellows or a similar virus; both are described at the link. If you click on the photos on the linked site, you'll be able to see more details of how flower centers can be affected.
