Echinacea ‘Secret Desire’


Double Hybrid Coneflower

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.650.330


A double-flowered Coneflower, this selection produces fragrant, bicolour flowers from summer through fall with pink and orange daisy-like petals surrounding a darker pompom. Plant habit is well-branched, strong and bushy. Ideal for sunny borders and growing in mixed containers. Attractive to butterflies and excellent for cutting. Coneflowers begin blooming in midsummer and continue for months if faded flowers are regularly removed. Leaving some spent flowers on the plants in the fall will provide food for wintering birds. The dried seed heads also provide interest in the winter garden. Introduced in the Secret™ series by Terra Nova Nurseries of Oregon. USPP#23085: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
