This echinacea is just beginning to come around and form its flower stalk/buds .. Sparkler ! .. I think it has been lost in the crowd of the new Big Sky echinaceas .. as much as I love those ones .. I still come back to this one as well as "Fatal Attraction" .. some day I will manage to have the two of them side by side for one heck of a "BANG" in contrast .. Fatal Attraction has very dark stems and brilliant flowers .. what a combination they would make together !
