Echinacea White Swan - I bought this as a bare root from Wilkinsons and started it in the greenhouse, extremely impressed as 1 of the flowers has lasted over a month!

well you must have! :P

Very pretty flowers that sometimes overwinter.

Plants originally are from South Africa and the flowers will only open when the sun is shining

Those look like Shasta Daisies. You should be able to dig & divide during the dormant season

Does anyone know what this is?

I hope so. I've seen them in flower up close in a park near where I work and they are magnificent.

I've given it the best spot in the garden for sunshine, its gets 90% of any sunshine that we receive during the day so I'm hoping this will encourage it to perform.
