A Coneflower that's not purple!!! This selection sports citron yellow flowers, the same color as Coreopsis v.'Moonbeam'. Its central cone starts out green and then widens and turns gold as it ages. The nice wide flower petals are slightly reflexed and overlap, giving the blossoms a full, substantial presence. This selection grows about 6 inches taller than E. 'Sunset'. Plant it up close where you can enjoy its delightful rose-like fragrance.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Echinacea purpurea is a wildflower native to the eastern United States and is well-adapted to survive the hot, windy conditions typical of that region. If properly cared for, they will form attractive colonies and will live for many years. Coneflowers like it sunny and hot. Though they will tolerate light shade, fewer flowers will be produced and the plants will be weakened. Light, loamy soils are best but coneflowers will grow in any well-drained soil. Once established, they are quite drought tolerant.
