Hello, all! This is Denise. =D =D

Lani and I are starting our posters. We're doing one that targets the field work and one that targets the lab work. We're hoping to fill it up with mostly photos like this:

Since I got back, I've been staying at Carey's house. His step-mom has a garden, and guess what I recognized? ECHINACEA! Loads and loads. ^o^ Anyway, we saw a sickly plant in her garden and were hoping for some feedback as to what it could be. There's some discoloration on the leaves and the heads don't look too healthy as well. Here are some photos:

=( Unhappy echinacea, yes. What could it be?

Here are some other plants from another part of her garden that look much better:

Denise, That could be Aster yellows. Those screwed up heads look like what we see on Aster yellows heads in Echinacea angustifolia. Sometimes we've seed E. angustifolia recover from aster yellows, but I've heard that most Echinacea cultivars don't.

Good luck with the posters!
