Echinacea PowWow Wild Berry Seeds

Echinacea PowWow Wild Berry Seeds

Echinacea purpurea

Item #1273

The most brilliantly colored coneflower yet, PowWow Wild Berry is also the most well-branched, meaning more flowers per plant. Started in January, it will bloom the first summer, just 20 weeks from sowing! Blooms retain their delicious color, making it terrific for fresh cut bouquets, as well as for everlastings. Native to the American prairie, it thrives in extremes of heat, cold, humidity and even drought, making it an excellent choice for naturalized and water-wise areas. Attracts bees and butterflies in summer, and birds in autumn when the cones are left to develop seeds.
