Common Garden Flowering Progress Report

We had a slow start to the flowering of Echinacea in the common garden for the 2008 season. Being one who gets excited about the abundance of Echinacea heads, I’m pleased to post the numbers of plants and flowering heads so far.

The total number of plants flowering in the common garden as of 17 July 2008 (which is sure to increase as we find more hiding in the tall brome or decrease as they are grazed by deer):
1027

The total number of flowering heads identified as of 17 July 2008 (many still just buds):
1868

As of 17 July 2008:
447 of the 1868 have started to flower. (They are still far from peak flowering!)

Here is a graph showing the number of heads that started to flower on each day.
