Echinacea purpurea ‘Pica Bella’
at Digging Dog

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.

If you’re looking for a new Echinacea that possesses plenty of fortitude, you’ll definitely want to consider this floriferous beauty. Dressed in dazzling watermelon pink shades, uniquely slender petals, featuring upturned margins, are widely spaced and extend horizontally from large nearly iridescent orange-bronze cones that goldfinches love to visit.

Distinctive among Echinaceas for its fine-textured floral parade, ‘Pica Bella’ stands strong on compact brawny stalks clothed with toothed tapering green leaves.

Blooms July–September.

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

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.
