Everything a great garden plant should be. Elegant, 4", clear orange, fragrant flowers with wide, overlapping petals hold their color well. Lovely honey scent. Multiple, wide-branching, strong stems. Floriferous with a long bloomtime, from midsummer into fall.
Grow Echinacea, also known as Coneflower, in a border, cottage or butterfly garden, or in a natural-type planting mingled with grasses and native plants. Plant in well drained soils. Drought tolerant when established. Deer resistant, attracts butterflies and song birds, and makes a long lasting cut flower.
