So, a couple of years ago I planted an orange coneflower (sunset was in the name). This year, here is a stem from it:
Yes, it now has orange and purple flowers on the same stem.
Some questions for my more experienced gardening friends: There is a purple coneflower planted fairly close. Would this color change have happened anyway, or is it something about having the purple one so close? And will it always have both colors, or will it eventually become all purple?
