Description

Big, fragrant white blooms and russet cones bring in the butterflies

Huge, pure white, wonderfully fragrant blooms bobbing atop hardy native plants that bloom freely over a very long season—is there a simpler or more beautiful plant for the garden than this White Swan Coneflower?

White Swan Coneflower is marvelously floriferous, and the scent evokes a summer day in the country. The pure white blooms are 4 to 5 inches wide, their hue accentuated by the large, knoblike golden-brown cones, which bring in the butterflies and bees and, after the very long bloom season has passed, are superb for drying and using in Everlasting arrangements.

These long-stemmed, bushy White Swan Coneflowers reach 2 feet tall, holding their blooms overhead like gay umbrellas on very sturdy stems from late spring till the cool temperatures of fall set in. Superb for a large planting anywhere, White Swan Coneflowers show to particular advantage in the back of the border, drifting across a perennial bed, or in any naturalized woodland or meadow setting.

White Swan Coneflowers are super-easy to start from seed, they bloom the first year and for many years thereafter, lasting through the worst heat and dry weather summer has to offer. The flowers are also superb in the vase—if you can tear them away from the butterflies, that is. A natural treasure, White Swan Coneflower belongs in almost every garden with space for plenty of colorful, long-lasting blooms.

~100 percent germination

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Great product. I planted 2 per cell in-doors with seed starting mix and they pretty much all germinated. Its sad because I will have to pull out the extras soon:( The tricky part will be planting these outside in Tucson. Wish me luck

Started seed late winter inside, planted out in May, bloomed nicely. Good germination rate. Pleased. Can't wait to see again this year. I will add more
