I don't have orange marmalade but I do have Hot Papaya. I dont see it coming up where it should be. I have various coneflowers coming up but most are the basic pink variety, some grown from seed.

RE: Orange coneflowers came back

I haven't but they sound beautiful. I am going to find a picture of them.

I did find rudbeckias growing all over this season where I didn't plant them.
I don't know what kind they are yet.
It would be wonderful if they turn out to be reseeds of the cherry brandy that I lost to the brutal winter.

Rudbeckias.... Not my favorite for thuggish tendencies.....
