Loved the look of this plant when I saw it at the local Home Depot in 2010 so I had to add it to my collection. This year it has come back but not with the gusto as my other coneflowers... updates to follow
It does well in my zone 7a garden with just 4 or 5 hours of direct sun. Flowers stay fresh for a long time on the plant and in the vase, and deadheading encourages more flowers. It blooms from July through frost here with deadheading.

I bought this plant in Bryan, Tx. and am hoping that it will do well in Dallas. I have tons of the white and purple which are very invasive but would not mind this plant to become that way for awhile. When I first planted I lost most of the blooms but the leaves are still healthy and maybe it just went into shock.

This has to be my favorite echinacea. I love the bi-color look of a great green with white. It is a midsummer bloomer and will continue well into the fall. It reaches 18 to 24 inches high. Blooms are so long lasting!
