RE: question for today- Sunday

The Echinacea may be a 'Sunrise' as it looks more yellow to me. I bought a
Sunrise and a Sunset from Wayside this year. Sunrise died, so they are
shipping a new on to me this fall. Sunset has much more orange and pink
throughout. Both are really pretty. The Sunrise is supposed to get huge
flowers, how big are yours?
