Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:
A new series of bright and colorful, single-petaled coneflowers from our breeding friends at AB-Cultivars in the Netherlands has flown the coop and landed in North America. Super winter hardy, with vigorous growth supported by stout and sturdy stems with loads and loads of flowers make this an exceptional series. Bloom power, quilled petals, ruffled edges, and dazzling color combinations are their signature. Like beloved birds, these coneflowers will add grace, form and beauty to any sunny garden space.
Echinacea ‘Parrot’ has bright, golden yellow petals with a pumpkin orange halo surround a velvety brown cone for a stunning combination. Not only is the color brilliant, the number of flowers is astounding. Each retail ready plant can have up to 50 flowers per pot. That’s amazing!
