Neutral Terry On Oct 25, 2005, Terry from Murfreesboro, TN (Zone 7a) wrote:

A new plant named to honor breast cancer survivors. According to plant catalogues, Echinacea is a fitting choice, long regarded for its healing properties while the pink petals symbolize the color of the breast cancer awareness campaign, and the cultivar name signifies hope for a cure.
