Echinacea purpurea ‘Pica Bella’

Purple Coneflower

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.650.090

A really unique Coneflower selection, this features very narrow or quilled mauve-pink petals surrounding a large rust orange button-shaped cone. Midsized in habit, this is ideal for sunny borders and containers. Excellent for cutting. Attractive to butterflies. Coneflowers begin blooming in midsummer and continue for months if faded flowers are regularly removed. Plants may be easily increased by dividing in the spring.
