Echinacea primadona

Ideal For:cottage gardens, wildlife gardens, cut flower garden, coastal garden
Flowering Period:July, August, September
Position:full sun
An improved strain of this popular American wildflower! These superb coneflowers form low growing clumps of leaves from which the sturdy flower stems launch upwards with their large, rose-pink daisies. Unlike many varieties, the petals of Echinacea purpurea 'Primadonna' radiate outwards instead of downwards from a deep orange-brown central cone. With a compact, branching habit, this fabulous variety makes a lovely addition to borders and wildlife gardens where it will attract butterflies and other pollinating insects. Height: 85cm (33"). Spread: 45cm (18").
