This is a white coneflower on steroids. Seriously, it has thick substance (much better than White Swan, Alba) thick stems (great for cutting), good garden performance. Doesn't wimp out after a heavy rain and OMG the fragrance! Hard to believe a coneflower could be THAT fragrant.

Echinacea can occasionally be infested by japanese beetles, root borers, aphids, cutworms, eriophyid mites, or tent caterpillars.
Occasionally, plants will get a fungal leaf spot that is ugly but will not kill the plant. Remove the affected leaves and throw them away (do not compost them). Some echinacea cultivars are susceptible to powdery mildew, a white fungus present on the leaves that detracts from the overall appearance of the plant but is not fatal. Similarly, the plant may be infected with the fungus botrytis, which is also not fatal. Fungus diseases can usually be managed by growing the plants where they receive good aeration.
Wilt, blight, and root rot from fusarium or sclerotinia may also occur if the soils are kept too wet and the bacteria pseudomonas may cause brown leaf spots. Plants with any of these three diseases need to be removed and discarded as they can spread to other plants and are ultimately fatal. Watch out for phytoplasma virus, which is spread by insects.

I really like the big flat white flowers on this one. It is a bit taller and did need staking.
