Echinacea ‘Marmalade’


CONE-FECTIONS Coneflower

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.650.210


A hybrid Coneflower with very interesting shaggy double blooms of rich marmalade orange. The flower colour seems to change colour in different light, sometimes showing a green flush in the centre. Plant habit is well-branched and midsized. Ideal for sunny borders and growing in mixed containers. Attractive to butterflies. Excellent for cutting. Coneflowers begin blooming in midsummer and continue for months if faded flowers are regularly removed. Part of the CONE-FECTIONS™ series bred by Arie Blom of the Netherlands and introduced by AB Cultivars/Plants Nouveau. USPP#22602: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
