    • I ordered this coneflower because it was a Proven Winners and because it was specifically yellow, lemon yellow It is not I ordered seven and received them but the name of this coneflower is Lemon Yellow, they are gold They have a long bloom time and sturdy stems which I appreciate but again they are gold The design for the flower bed that they are in was for lemon yellow coneflowers but they are not, they are gold! I hate that the whole bed is off due to the wrong color. If you want yellow don’t get these

    • This was the FIRST and LAST time I will order plants on-line. The box was clearly marked THIS END UP, with an arrow pointing to the top of the box. I was home when it was delivered and watched the driver literally throw the box onto my porch. The box landed on its side. I'm pretty sure the box was not kept upright in the truck either. One of the plants inside was very small, and was knocked completely out of its pot. I am not sure it will survive. I paid $22 for shipping, and only 2 out of 3 plants in my order arrived in acceptable condition. Bad experience.

    • This guy has gone bonkers in my hot humid climate. An absolute grin of a plant. Super adaptable. We’ve had more rain than usual this summer and between days of sog and scorching 100 degree temps, this fella has thrived.
