Description

Heat-loving and water-wise, echibeckia make truly wonderful, very long-flowering container plants and long-lasting cut flowers. Fabulous, vermillion blooms, tinged with scarlet and mahogany surround a dark chocolate centre.

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.
