Echinacea Harvest Moon

Big Sky Coneflower

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.196.620

(=‘Matthew Saul’) Yet another amazing breakthrough in colour, this remarkable hybrid Coneflower features soft golden-orange petals surrounding a deep russet-orange cone. 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. This is in the Big Sky™ series from ItSaul Plants in Georgia. USPP#17652: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
