I have something similar. I bought mine as 'Double Decker' and the first year it really was a double decker, but this year it lost its second storey and looks much more like your Pink Cushion! Still pretty though.

The only interesting one I have is the Hot Papaya. But it bloomed in July, and only 2 blooms this year.

Puff, your Pink Cushion is very pretty. Its simalar to my "Pink Double Delight" . I have several Echinacea , love them all but "Hot Papaya" is a stunner. Mine is the second yr and was full of blooms!

VERY PRETTY!! I didn't realize there were 'double-doubles' (LOL) in Echinacea - I have two very large plants (singles) that bloomed for a long time this summer. I'm going to keep my eyes open for a 'double-double' now!! One of the Rudbeckia I bought had singles and 'double-doubles' - but I think they may have had both in one pot. The single is still blooming as is my red Rudbeckia.
Gardening requires a lot of water - most of it in the form of perspiration.
