Echinacea - Yellow Coneflower 'Mac 'n' Cheese'

I ordered this Echinacea from the Bulb and Plant Coop, purchased from Terra Nova Nurseries. The Echinaceas from TNN are supposed to be more hardy and healthy that the Big Sky series in recent years. It was planted in BBB on the right front along the order edging.

This planting is in the Butterfly - Bee - Bird garden .
