Description

Heat-loving and water-wise, echibeckia make truly wonderful, very long-flowering container plants and long-lasting cut flowers. 'Summerina Brown' is a deep, rich and velvety copper, darkening to mahogany towards the centre of the flower.

The plants are compact and will bloom continually through all of summer and well into autumn. These hybrids are a real breakthrough in modern plant breeding. You get the floriferous appearance of rudbeckia with the hardiness and dark central cone of a perennial echinacea; excellent for attracting birds and pollinators.
