Echinacea purpurea White Swan

<i>Echinacea purpurea</i> ‘White Swan’

Echinacea

Coneflower

Notable for a dashing display of bold, daisylike cut flowers and an easy-to-get-along-with personality, Echinacea is favored by beginning and experienced gardeners alike for its colorful yet indestructible nature. Sculpted with prominent and raised central cones, the hefty flower heads of this summer blooming perennial are lifted above the greenery on sturdy stems, which are strong enough to hold them without staking.

Native to the eastern and central U.S., the dark green, lanceolate leaves are reminiscent of a close relative, Rudbeckia. Perfect in a perennial border or peppered throughout a meadow garden, Coneflower’s erect stalks complement the more relaxed look of other plants.

Dignified as the name implies, large, pure white flowers crest branching, stalwart stems cloaked in handsome dark green foliage. Broad and slightly reflexed, the bright petals achieve a stunning contrast as they skirt each golden brown boss. With an upright stance, ‘White Swan’ looks simply noble in the company of Monarda ‘Violet Queen’ and a dark red Sanguisorba.

Blooms July–mid-September.

Size: 2-1/2'–3' 0" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers....

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.
