Are there any hybrid echinacea that don't revert?

That is to say, if I bought a "Cantaloupe", "Butterfly Kisses", or "White Swan", will they revert to a more species type in a year or 3? or just die?

A couple of years ago I bought 3 "Cheyenne Spirit", and selected plants that had a bloom on them in one of the shades of yellow or orange. They've never produced the multicolored blooms since - they are just the generic purple coneflower.

I am seeing a nice sale, but I am reluctant to buy and pay the shipping if they are just going to revert. I have plenty of the standard purple.

Anyone with experience?
