This stunning new Echinacea has slender orange reflexed petals around a dark brown centre from June to September. It's a tough and vigorous plant that does not need staking and like other coneflowers it is long-flowering and will cope well with adverse weather conditions except drought. Try it dotted through a sunny mixed border or in bold drifts among grasses or as part of a 'hot' colour scheme where it will extend the season of interest. It is attractive to bees and butterflies and birds will flock to the seedheads.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide congested colonies in autumn or spring. In autumn cut back all dead flower stems to the ground. Coneflowers benefit from a spring or autumn mulch with well-rotted compost.
