USDA Zone: 4-9

(=‘Rainb299’) This is a new introduction to the Butterfly™ Series of coneflowers bred for hardiness, long-lasting bloom and compact habit. It features single petaled, flowers the colour of orange sherbet that age to soft, raspberry pink. Retains its colour until winter frost. Drought tolerant once established. Coneflowers are a very popular and versatile perennial. Leaving spent blooms over the winter adds interest to the landscape and provides seeds for birds staying through the cold season.
