My Trial Garden Early Winners and Losers

Echinacea 'Tomato Soup'
Well many perennials have started poking their heads out of the ground, yet alas some have not. One of the early losers is my Echinacea 'tomato soup'. Planted in the spring of 2009, I was surprised and delighted to see it come back with vigor in 2010. Yesterday I have determined that it has not returned to see 2011. It was planted in a dry, sunny spot in the garden where it should have thrived. I am not entirely disappointed, since the color of this although nice when first open, faded quickly. This is the best photo I had since it didn't grow all that well. Echinacea 'hot papaya on the other hand looks to be doing wonderfully, planted in the spring of 2010, I can't wait to see those blooms.
