A profusion of true bright pink, pompon-like flowers which measure about 3" across are produced on strong, well-branched stems from mid through late summer. The flowers are long-lasting, turning lavender pink as they age.
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.
