=(‘TNECHKIO’) The ever-popular Coneflower is a versatile perennial. The KISMET® series is from an interspecific breeding program offering higher crown count, first year blooming, compact and upright habit, an extended flowering period and better overwintering survivability. This selection features masses of flat-petaled, vivid orange flowers with a large, central, gold-brown cone. Attractive to butterflies. Excellent for cutting. These coneflowers begin blooming in early summer and continue for months if faded flowers are regularly removed. Although leaving some spent blooms on over the winter months provides food for finches and other birds. Dried seed heads also provide interest to the winter garden.
