A new selection coming as close to red as any Echinacea. The enormous 5-6”, strongly fragrant flowers have horizontally held ray petals, making the flowers seem even larger.  From mid through late summer, these showy blooms are produced atop very dark, near black stems that are thick and sturdy. As the flowers pass their prime, they age to an attractive smoky rose.


Echinacea are native to central and eastern U.S. and are well adapted to withstand severe conditions. Light, loamy soil is best but any well-drained dirt will do. They like it sunny and hot. Deadheading spent flowers significantly prolongs their bloom time. Once established, they are quite drought tolerant. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter. Allow some spent blooms to remain on the plants in fall since their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds.
