Echinacea 'Butterfly Kisses'

Coneflower

Plant Type: Perennial
FULL sun to MORNING sun/AFTERNOON shade

Selected for its compactness and sturdy habit, one of the nicest of the double pom-pom type Echinaceas introduced thus far. Nicely proportional plants with large flowers held like an umbrella just atop the attractive deep green foliage. The compact, very well-branched, broadly mounding plants have very strong flower stems, an improvement over older pink doubles. Fragrant, bright pink, pom-pom flowers with lighter ray petals measure 3” across--large flowers for such a compact plant. Be sure to leave some spent blooms on the plants in the fall because their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter.
