Echinacea 'Now Cheesier'

While we love the color of Now Cheesier and it's predecessor, Mac 'n Cheese, this is the frustrating part of the coneflower market as of late. One year or two years after a plant is released, breeders immediately release an improved form. We say buy this one and dump Mac and Cheese. Or vice versa. Either way you don't need both but you should have one.
