No 😥 realise I have to treat echinacea as annuals in my garden Sue. None seem to return 🤷🏻‍♀️ @suerichards

Love it. None of mine came back either Rachel. I was so disappointed. I had some with the plug plants, but they haven’t flowered, so I’m thinking they won’t come back next year. I might pot them up and keep them in the cold frame 🤔

It’s now at its palest John, starts off such a lary lime green. But I like that too! @ukjohnny

Yes do, flower! 👍🏼I did that with my first one of these and it came back the following year. Maybe I should cut this back and do the same 🤔 @susanhumphrey333

My pink coneflowers come back each year Rachel but I think it's because they are the basic type (forgot what they call it when they breed them up more fancy lol) I've heard the special ones are much less hardy. I love this one 😊

Oh I didn’t know there were different types Ang 🤔 well this is definitely one of the fancy ones! Might be alright in your garden though as you get more sun ☺️ @angiecrazycatlady

Me neither Rachel. One of mine started off green, not like yours though, turned orange and then more of a peachy pink. This is my first year with them and I'm loving them so much. 😍😍😍
