young echinacea

Out of all the seeds I planted earlier this year, only two more Echinacea plants survived to grow this big.
A few days ago I planted them out in the garden
I put them next to the Borgae, which has grown nice and full. I haven't noticed many pollinators around the borage, but the Zucchini next to it does seem particularly untroubled by pests, even though it's between bean poles and pumpkins riddled by them. So I wonder if the borage deters some of the bothersome insects?

My fullgrown ones look real sad right now. Are you supposed to deadhead the flowers when they start to fade?
