A dynamic mixed color strain of Echinaceas, the first of its kind offered from seed. In our trials, we marveled at the incredible color range of these first year-flowering perennials which includes rich shades of tomato red, near-fluorescent orange, magenta, golden yellow, and white.
Though the height of each color varies slightly, they are all very well-branched, bushy plants that fill out the pot nicely and have high color impact in the landscape.
Praised for their cheerful brightly colored flowers, coneflowers are a mainstay in today's garden.
Be sure to leave some spent blooms on the plants in the fall because their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter. (Source: Walters Gardens, Inc.)
