Mellow Yellows Coneflower

Echinacea purpurea 'Mellow Yellows'

An array of yellow hues displayed at once, opening deep mango and mellowing as they age, eventually reaching buttery ivory. Blooms from summer well into fall. Easy care, loved by bees, and a fabulous cut flower. A perennial garden favorite, quite rightly.
