Echinacea 'Pretty Parasols'

  • $ 12.95


Echinacea Pretty Parasols is a unique type that looks similar to Echinacea paradoxa in bloom style but is a pristine white with purple/pinkish halo, and reddish/orange cones.  The stems are proclaimed to be extremely strong and being they get to 36" with the abundance of bloom set they definitely need this characteristic.  This is a first time trial for us but we are confident enough to offer them from rave reviews from here in the US and in Europe.  There truly isn't a coneflower quite like this one.  Try in the border this fall for great displays next summer.
