Plant Type: Perennials

Solar Flare' is far more neat and compact than Echinaceas of yore. This plant reaches only 24 to 36 inches high, with terrific branching and plenty of flowering stems. The spread is about 18 to 24 inches, small enough for those tight garden spaces. The dark stems on which the flowers are borne add another bit of interest to the display, standing out nicely from the olive-green foilage.
