ECHINACEA CONEFLOWER RED in Shades

A hardy colourful Herbaceous Perennial, attaining 32-40 inches high with long-lasting, large 4-5 In flowers in shades of red which change as each flower matures.   Its long stems make it ideal for cut flower bouquets and is a notable improvement on the wild variety.  It does great in moist or dry soils, and combines well with other tall perennials such as Daisies.  The bloom period for these flowers is Spring and Summer. Can be sown from Spring or Autumn.
