Thank you Bali. The dragon fruit does develop fruit on it. Its a very strange looking fruit. I've read that some taste like melons or kiwi, and others have a bland flavor. I think they sell the fruit in Asian markets or places like Whole Foods. I got the White Coneflower yesterday, I don't know if its sterile or not. I have another one that I rescued called Pink Double Delight which is a double flowering coneflower. I'll post a pic or the tag. I think its a sterile plant since its a hybrid. I got it for 5o cents lol

The pink double delight is the only "fancy" coneflower that I've had good luck w/ coming back year after year. You'll love it! Rescuing plants is always fun!

I'm glad to hear that plantlady. I've been reading about the Big Sky Coneflowers and people have said they are a big disappointment. This is my first year growing coneflowers. I would love to eventually get the regular purple coneflowers since they get taller. Most of my plants are clearance rack plants lol.
