More Details

People will tell you that these newly bred echinaceas are not perennial. Well that's not what we've found in our trials. These 3 have come back in the cutting garden now for 5 years. They make superb garden plants (without too much crowding), and are amongst my favourite perennials for picking, with a cut-and-come-again nature and excellent vase life.

  • Echinacea x hybrida 'Eccentric'
  • Echincea x hybrida 'Marmalade'
  • Echinacea x hybrida 'Irresistible'

Brilliant product- hope the Dahlias are as stunning as my Tulips bought last year and are now in full bloom. Just like the picture in your catalogue,
