Echinacea ‘Supreme Cantaloupe’


Hybrid Coneflower

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.650.670


A hybrid Coneflower, featuring double flowers of coral and shrimp-pink with rosy-copper ray petals. Flowers have a lovely fragrance. Plant habit is well-branched, strong and bushy. Ideal for sunny borders and growing in mixed containers. Excellent for cutting. Attractive to butterflies. Coneflowers begin blooming in midsummer and continue for months if faded flowers are regularly removed. Leaving some spent blooms on the plants in the fall will provide food for wintering birds. Dried seed heads also provide interest in the winter garden. Part of the Supreme™ Series from Terra Nova Nurseries, Oregon. USPP#24897: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
