Echinacea Meteor Yellow (Coneflower)

Masses of double soft yellow flowers open around a bright yellow pom-pom centre. Once fully bloomed they resemble puffballs and grow tall above vibrant 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.
