Bmorrell's Echinacea 'White Swan' x 1 Growing
3/22/12 Update: There are green leaves all around the base of last years plant! I think it has successfully survived the winter, and with the unseasonably warm weather has started to make its comeback!
9/16/11 Update: Flowers! One big one and two littler ones. I never managed to get any pictures of it blooming, but will next year for sure!
Spring 2011 Growing well if slowly. I don’t anticipate any flowers this year unfortunately.
