Echinacea is a genus of plant that's native to North America, although this particular cultivar was was introduced by Kieft-Pro Seeds in 2012.
Individual plants may produce flowers of either white, cream, red, pink, gold, yellow or purple. We suggest buying at least 3 plants at a time to ensure a variety of color.
The flower stems are known to remain erect after their blooms subside, which often allows the seeds at the center of the flower to dry, providing a source of food for birds.
The flowers dry particularly well and are often used in dried floral arrangements.
