Echinacea 'Cleopatra'

Coneflower

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

Incredibly vibrant golden yellow, fragrant flowers with a large, orange cone are produced on very strong, well-branched stems above a stocky clump of compact, deep green foliage. The single flowers measure a full 3-3 ½” across since their petals are held horizontally, and they lighten to creamy yellow as they age. 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.
