Echinacea  Harvest Moon™

<i>Echinacea</i> ‘Harvest Moon™’

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.

“Echinacea” is derived from the greek word for hedgehog and this Echinacea’s pronounced rusty orange cones remind us of the little critter’s spiky fur. Lax, loosely arranged and luminous, the perfumed, overlapping golden yellow rays span 4 in. across and are resilient, even during the worst summer heat. Another prized Richard Saul introduction, ‘Harvest Moon’s extra long lasting, autumn-hued flowers are bolstered by abundantly branched staunch stems and a good-looking, compact leafy base. (pp#17652)

Blooms late July – September.

Size: 2' 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.
