Echinacea 'Julia'

Coneflower

Plant Type: Perennial

Glowing tangerine orange, fragrant flowers with a deep copper cone are produced on very strong, well-branched stems above a stocky clump of compact, deep green foliage. As the flowers broaden and age, they lighten a bit to golden orange. These impressive flowers with horizontally held petals measure a full 4" across, an incredibly large flower for such a compact plant.
Praised for their cheerful brightly colored flowers, coneflowers are a mainstay in today's garden. 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.
