Another strange echinacea

Echinaceasunset500 Following up my previous post on echinaceas with malformed petals, I saw another ruined by quilled flowers in a garden yesterday. It's  probably 'Sunset', the label had gone astray and it's difficult to be precise with so few petals and those so quilled.  Some people really like it, though, and apparently it's caused a lot of comment. And the degree of quilling changes according to the time of day. There are five flowers on the plant, all with quilled petals.
