'White Swan' is the perfect name for this graceful echinacea, a natural selection from white-flowered variations of the native, purple echinacea. Its flowers attract butterflies and other pollinators, while birds enjoy the seeds. The cone-like seed heads also add a nice architectural touch to the winter garden. A long-lasting cut flower, it adds a sparkle of white to floral arrangements.

Great flowers

5 out of 5 stars Jul 20, 2020
100% germination rate for these seeds! Super easy to start inside. They were sowed in late January in hopes for a few first year blooms which I have gotten for zone 5. Hardy and vigorous plants. The first blooms are very pretty. I haven't tried them yet to see what kind of vase life they have.
