About The Meadow Mama Series:
Bright colors and loads of pollinator enticing flowers are what you can expect from this new series of coneflowers from AB-Cultivars in The Netherlands. Perfect for adding to mixed flower beds around your house, or in front of a fence, or planted in large quantities surrounding an office building, their flower power will amaze and delight you all summer long. These fabulous new, single-petaled coneflowers come in saturated colors and even interesting bi-color combinations, making a complete series of strong, nurturing ladies for any garden space – small or large. Not only are the Meadow Mamas perfect for any sunny garden, but they also look beautiful in any patio or porch pot. You can even plant them in a mixed pot with other flowers and even herbs that you use for cooking.
About this plant:
Deep gold, slightly droopy petals are highlighted by a fire-red halo surrounding a deep red cone. Like a red headed woman, Fiery Meadow Mama will light up, and enhance any full sun garden. This new beauty also makes the perfect pot full of flowers on a patio or porch all by itself, or in a mixed container with purple leaved grasses and coral bells. It’s the perfect late summer and early fall color combination – all in one plant.
