This Coneflower from Terra Nova Nurseries boasts an interesting color flower, which they describe as glowing watermelon-coral. It’s been a dream for growers and retailers who have tried it, and we’re sure you’ll like it too. This floriferous, compact plant also boasts a long period of bloom, from early summer to early fall. ‘Glowing Dream’ would be a great addition to combination containers or planted en masse 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.
