Echinacea Sundown


Big Sky Coneflower

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.196.670


(=‘Evan Saul’) Yet another amazing breakthrough in colour, this remarkable hybrid Coneflower features deep burnt-orange petals surrounding a large cinnamon brown button-shaped cone. Flowers are slightly smaller than Big Sky™ ‘Sunset’ but richer in colour. Blooms are delightfully fragrant, the plants well-branched, strong and bushy in habit. 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. A recent introduction in the Big Sky™ series from ItSaul Plants in Georgia. USPP#17659: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
