We have been waiting two years to introduce this first year flowering, irresistible echinacea. The petals on each flower have alternating shades of lime mingled with shades of pink creating a unique array of colors on a single plant. Sturdy 3’ tall plants are a natural mutation of the variety Magnus, allowing abundant, ever-changing colors from mid-summer to fall. Zone 3-8.
Germination: 10-21 days
Seed Planting Depth: 1/8" deep
Starting Indoors: Start indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Provide 70-75 degree F soil temperature. Transplant into the garden after the last frost. Water seedlings regularly until established.
Outside Sowing: Spring when soil temperatures reach 60-65 degrees. Sow a few seeds every 2-6", thinning out to 10-18" apart.
Growth Habit: Upright
Height and Width:
Light Needs: Full sun
Soil Needs: Poor to average, well drained, tolerates dry soil.
Approximate days to flower from seed: days
Uses: Cut flowers, flower beds, containers, wildflower and cottage gardens, attracts butterflies and beneficials.
Care: Deadheading prolongs flowering, staking tall plants helps keep them upright when the plant is full of blooms.

The germination rate was about 70% ... which was a little disappointing but the little plants are looking great and I am anxiously awaiting the flowers!
