This first-year flowering, dwarf echinacea comes in vibrant colors that will light up the garden.

Practically care free, echinacea adapts to heat, drought, humidity, and poor soil. This short blend is a nice addition to patio containers. Perennial in USDA zones 3–8.

Great Germination

5 out of 5 stars Jun 22, 2021
I was a little worried when i received only a few seeds but after sowing 10 in seed starter under grow lights the germination rate was great- 9 out of 10 grew very quickly. I started these late so might not get any blooms this year but so far they're doing well in my garden.
