Propagation of Echinacea sport
This year, half of my very ordinary purple coneflower has bloomed a brilliant green color and has petals curled in near-tubes (similar to many zinnias and dahlias I've seen), and I am interested in propagating this if possible. I am relatively new at this and mostly unaware of the biology involved. Is it likely that seeds produced by these flowers would grow the same phenotype? Would root cuttings grow this? Or would I be better off trying to root some stem cuttings? Any advice would be much appreciated!
