Such a rare color for Echinacea, this selection boasts saturated cranberry red, double pom-pom flowers that don’t bleach out as they age, putting on a sizzling hot show of color in the landscape for several months beginning in early summer.

IThe plants are very consistent and vigorous growers both in production and in the landscape. Clean, deep green foliage forms a sturdy, very well-branched, upright clump that fills out gallon sized pots well.

The fragrant blossoms are long lasting in fresh bouquets and attract butterflies like a magnet.

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.
