A great traditional looking coneflower with nontraditional lemon yellow petals.
A new series of Coneflower bred to produce well-branched, sturdy and compact plants featuring a high bud count. This selection produces very large, single flowers with overlapping orange petals surrounding a large, rust-brown cone. Ideal for sunny borders and growing in mixed containers. Attractive to butterflies. Excellent for cutting. Coneflowers begin blooming midsummer and continue for months if faded flowers are regularly removed. However keeping some dried flower heads on the plants in fall will provide food for wintering song birds. Dried seed heads also add interest to the winter garden. USPPP: Unlicensed propagation prohibited.
