Echinacea
'Rainbow Marcella'

Another “Coneflower” that has successfully overwintered here in our wet and mild Winter climate! And an Echinacea you will certainly fall in love with, just as we did! A super heavy bloomer with lots and lots of big – almost 4”-across heart-melting bi-colored raspberry and peach pinwheels surrounding a prominent central cherry-burgundy “cone”. More compact than most Echinaceas, to only 18” x 18”, you can easily plant them right up front of the bed. Also great in containers. Well-drained average garden soil. Butterfly magnet! Cut flowers! So pretty, easy to grow, and incredibly floriferous! Echinaceas are one of the most beloved flowers in American gardens – they attract butterflies and bees, and their seeds held in fat and fluffy maroon center cones are absolute manna to wild birds! Deer and rabbit resistant!
