Yes Katarina it is I grew this last year but I think I may have lost it. Such a shame it was such a lovely plant. I am in the process of tying to revive it but all this rain isn't helping.

Mine are still growing yet, no flowers. Your season started quite soon, as Echinacea usually bloom when there is already warm and sunny for several weeks.

O no Katarina this is a photo from last year pulled out and sighed over becuase I was feeling sad that it was in such a poor state after the winter and all the rain.

Good news Katarina I've just found some tiny shoots on the Echinacea I am so pleased It was such a beautiful colour and was given to me by a friend who had grown it especially for me. It meant a lot as she had gone to so much trouble.

Congratulation! :)
I have a similar problem with Euonymus Fortunei bushes which were destroyed by February frosts.

I know that Echinacea doesnĀ“t like wet soil, so if you have lot of rains, it might make its development harder.
