Adding Plants From The Echinacea Family To Your Garden

If there is one family of perennial flowering plants that deserves a good look it is the ‘purple cone flower’ or Echinacea family.

 

I can’t think of one family of plants that has had more new, exciting, gorgeous varieties added to it than this one.

 

Look for:

 

  • Firebird  – A brilliant orange that will knock your gardening socks off.
  • Raspberry Truffle – A double flowering cone flower that features a bright red flower that you will want to eat (go ahead, they are edible but not really…Ie. they won’t hurt you…!)
  • Pow Wow – A bright, clean white.  Of all the new ‘white’ Echinacea varieties that I have seen lately this one is the cleanest, brightest white (sounds like a laundry detergent commercial… think I could get a job copy writing?)
  • Leilaui – A bright, sunshiny yellow.  This is one of the newest (to me) of the group and I really like the hotness of the colour.
