Echinacea Purple Emperor (Coneflower)

(Butterfly™ Series) Magenta purple petals surrounding a maroon centre cone grow tall en masse above full, deep green foliage. As the season progresses the tips of the petals lighten to a soft pink. 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.
