Echinacea 'Double Scoop™ Lemon Cream' (Coneflower)

Masses of double buttery lemon-yellow flowers open around a lime green centre and, once fully bloomed, resemble puffballs, grow tall above deep green foliage. Rapid growth rate.

Use as cut or dried flowers. Be sure to keep some flowers in the garden over winter, as the blackened seedheads provide cold-season garden interest, as well as food for finches and other winter birds.
