Echinacea purpurea 'Indian Summer'
The large centers and long, thin petals create a unique new look!
This rare Marco van Noort Coneflower hybrid adds a warm glow to the patio or the front of the border all summer long, with magnificent orange blooms that start coral in their centers and transition to amber at the tips. The melon-orange tones play beautifully over the gracefully recurved petals.
Gorgeous in containers, the middle of the border, or prairie gardens, Coneflowers will seed easily, naturalizing over time to fill any space that is suitable for them! And once you see these blooms, you will want to have plenty for your garden and vase alike! The architectural seedheads are perfect for everlasting arrangements, or you can leave them out in the fall to act as nature's birdfeeder!
The purpurea species are a group of mostly-purple coneflowers native to the central-to-southeastern United States. 'Indian Summer' is distinct from the species due to its lovely red-orange tones, but shares with the species a robust, healthy habit. 'Indian Summer' stands up against heat, humidity, drought, poor soil, deer, and other dangers. Pamper it the first season, then let it take off. You won't be disappointed! 1 Quart container.
