Echinacea Cone-Fections™ Coconut Lime

The first double white echinacea ever! A trendy lime green bloom on a sturdy, floriferous plant. This introduction couldn't have come a t a better time. Lime green is so "in" right now that gardener's are searching for green-blooming plants for their gardens.

Plants Nouveau  is proud to introduce the first-ever double white echinacea. Coconut Lime comes to us from the breeding brilliance of AB-Cultivars breeder Arie Blom in The Netherlands. This new selection exhibits a stout, sturdy habit and numerous white, fully double pompon-like flowers. The center of each bloom begins leaf green and changes to light lime green as it ages. The plant is well branched and very floriferous, producing numerous straight and sturdy flower stems. The cone consists of pales that have developed into tubular, greenish-white ray petals.

Coconut Lime is one of those plants that blooms all summer in my garden. Deadhead it in a timely manner and you'll have delicious lime green blooms for arrangements until the first hard frost. I have seen this plant in trial gardens from Seattle to Massachusetts and south from Dallas to Pensacola. This coneflower truly can grow well all over the US (and beyond...) . It's so nice to see the plants we've been trialing all over the country growing so well in so many places. I expect Coconut Lime will be a long-loved selection in many gardens.

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
