Echinacea Purpurea 'Vintage Wine' (Pbr) (Coneflower)

Echinacea Purpurea 'Vintage Wine' (Pbr) (Coneflower)

Cheerful, deep pink flowers

An unusual variety of coneflower with scented, deep pink flowers that have shorter, stiffer petals than other varieties, and deep brown central cones. This cheerful, daisy-like echinacea flowers from midsummer through to autumn. It is a tough plant that does not need staking and it makes an excellent cut flower. Like other coneflowers, it is long-flowering and will cope well with adverse weather conditions, except drought. Try it dotted through a sunny, mixed border or in bold drifts among grasses. It is attractive to bees and butterflies and birds will flock to the seedheads.
