Echinacea purpurea ‘Pink Double Delight’

USDA Zone: 3-9

This Coneflower selection forms a well-branched and fairly compact mound. The flowers have frilly double centers of deep rose-pink, surrounded by a ring of soft-pink daisy type petals. Blooms well from midsummer through fall if faded blooms are removed regularly. Excellent for cutting. Very versatile in the garden, useful in borders and most especially in mixed containers. Part of the CONE-FECTIONS™ series bred by Arie Blom of the Netherlands and introduced by AB Cultivars/Plants Nouveau. USPP#18803: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
