Coneflowers are native American perennials that have lit up the mid-western prairies for centuries in yellows, browns, and purples. More recently breeders have been coaxing out amazing shades of red, orange, lavender, and coral.

Now there is a truly unique new color and form in this exquisite native flower. Playful Meadow Mama Echinacea is a raspberry pink with curled white tips like berries dipped in cream. The central cone is deep red which makes a surprising and lovely counterpoint to the striking petals.

The Meadow Mama series of coneflowers are slightly taller than other Echinacea’s and are super floriferous. They are perfect for mixed borders or massed plantings. Their flower power will amaze you! They are excellent for your sunny garden and they make perfect potted plants in your favorite container with your favorite annuals and perennials. Plant plenty to cut and bring inside or share with your neighbors.

Not only will you and your neighbors enjoy these beauties every year, but they attract pollinators like…well…bees to honey!
