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.
Quite different from its robust cousins, this Echinacea’s ethereally rayed, pale pink to purple petals drape delicately from a bold brown center. A superb plant for naturalizing en masse, it is equally lovely in a bouquet.
Size: 2-1/2' high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
