This exciting Echinacea is absolutely unbeatable for flower power! It’s not only the most brilliantly coloured Echinacea yet, but it’s also the best branched, which means more flowers all season. It doesn’t need to be deadheaded to set new buds, so the flowers just keep coming! And it’s compact, so you can grow it in a container if you like, or squeeze it into that crowded sunny border! Ht 50-60 (20-24 in).
Start seed 5 to 6 weeks prior to intended date of transplanting outside. Press seed into soil or lightly cover either will do, light requirements are optional.
