Echinacea purpurea ‘White Swan’


White Coneflower

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.196.900


A white-flowered form of the Purple Coneflower, one of our most popular native wildflowers. Plants form a medium to tall clump of coarse dark-green leaves, by midsummer bearing large daisy flowers with drooping white petals surrounding a greenish-brown central cone. Removing faded flowers regularly will greatly increase the flowering period. Seedheads have good winter interest. Outstanding for cutting. Attractive to butterflies. Plants may be easily divided in early spring. Any seedlings that appear can also be moved at that time. Combines beautifully with the purple form.
