Echinacea x Big Sky Solar Flare - Coneflower

Echinacea x Big Sky™ 'Solar Flare' PP22133

Coneflower

The flowers of 'Solar Flare' Coneflower are large and red, set off by contrasting dark cones and long dark stems. The effect is striking in the garden or as a cut flower. ‘Solar Flare’ blooms for an extended time from early to late summer, especially if deadheaded occasionally. Butterflies are attracted to the vivid flowers, and the dried seedheads are an important fall food source for finches.
