Supreme™ Cantaloupe Coneflower

Echinacea 'Cantaloupe' PP #24,897

SKU
00705
Like no other - a coneflower the exact color of a ripe cantaloupe! Fragrant, long-lasting blooms with a conspicuous center cone show off atop strong, non-floppy stems. Superior branching creates a full yet compact shape. This hardy herbaceous perennial is perfect for a border or cutting garden, and tolerates drought when established.
