I was never a fan of Echinaceas here in our temperate Bay Area as they just would not overwinter, but our intrepid staff urged another try for this beautiful robust new variety. It’s now breezed through 2 Winters here, so we can attest to its durability – yay! BIG BIG 4”-across skirted salmon-apricot pom-pom blooms held aloft on sturdy – unfloppable – upright branching stems to 2’ tall just keep coming from mid-Summer thru Fall with deadheading. Long-lasting cut flowers! Great in containers (5+ gal). Well-drained average garden soil. Butterflies! Deer resistant!
