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.

Anxiously awaiting the flowers!

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!
