When trying a plant search for Echinacea, the results come back for Rudbekia, are they both one and the same plant?

No they're not Greg. That's a bit weird

see how that one goes. 

are you looking for how to grow them or where to buy one

The common name Coneflower is used for both species, which often leads to confusion. Which is why we should all get used to using scientific names!

And require different growing conditions.....rudbekias like more moisture and take more shade.

When searching on Suttons for Echinacea, I am shown pink or purple Rudbekia, odd

I'd try another company Greg

I used Kings Seeds Echinacea White Swan last year, if you want a different colour.
