Echinacea ‘Flame Thrower’

Hybrid Coneflower

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.650.120

A hybrid Coneflower, this selection features bright, bicolor orange and yellow petals surrounding a large rusty-brown, button-shaped cone. Flowers are fragrant. Plant habit is large, well-branched, strong and bushy. Ideal for sunny borders and growing in mixed containers. Attractive to butterflies. Excellent cut flower. Coneflowers begin blooming in midsummer and continue for months if faded flowers are regularly removed. However leaving some spent blooms on the plants in the fall provides food for wintering birds. A 2009 introduction in the Prairie Pillars™ Series from Terra Nova Nurseries in Oregon. USPP#21932: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
