Description

It's how this echinacea fades that makes it exceptionally lovely - these double, gymkhana-rosette style echinaceas are some of my new favourite things. We now have lots in our perennial cutting garden, where they thrive without overcrowding and have a vase life of over 2 weeks.

Care Tips

Echinacea do not like to be crowded, give them space to establish in your garden and avoid spots that are wet in winter. Mulch around the plants in autumn but not over the crowns. Once planted, they are best left alone; they do not transplant well.
