Cultivar Notes - 'Big Sky™ Sunset'
Vibrant orange blossoms with wide overlapping petals. Honey rose scented flowers attract butterflies and the seeds attract birds. Good cut flower.
Genus Notes - Echinacea
Enchinacea have always been a mainstay in the sunny perennial garden. Their popularity has skyrocketed in recent years due to intensive breeding programs that have produced fantastic new colors and introduced double and semi-double forms. They are easy to grow and tolerate a wide range of conditions, including being drought and heat tolerant.
Coneflowers are rugged perennials with a season of bloom that spans the entire summer. They are indispensable in the garden and excellent for cutting. All they need is plenty of sun and well-drained soil. Attractive cone heads add winter interests and are good for dried arrangements.
Series Notes - Big Sky™
These varieties are vigorous, free branching, and bloom all summer through a killing frost. They are drought tolerant and fragrant, attract butterflies and are excellent cut flowers. Perfect plants!
