Echinacea purpurea Praire Pillars™ \'Merlot\'

Echinacea purpurea Praire Pillars™ 'Merlot'

Expansive, rosy pink petals are displayed on long burgundy stems. Best of all, this hardy, well-branched Coneflower holds up its abundant blossoms without staking. PP 18,814

Please note: So plants may properly establish before winter, we recommend early fall planting of Echinacea in colder zones (Zone 5 and lower).

Echinacea, a North American genus in the Daisy family, has big, bright flowers that appear from late June until frost. Coneflowers thrive in average soils or hot, dry conditions and shrug off cold. Blooms last well, cut or dried, and the seeds in the large cone at the heart of the flower head provide nourishment for birds. We offer exciting new hybrids and excellent strains of Coneflower, E. purpurea, a rugged species that is native from Iowa and Ohio to Louisiana and Georgia. Equally at home in formal borders or cottage gardens.
