Echinacea tennesseensis ‘Rocky Top Hybrids’

Echinacea tennesseensis ‘Rocky Top Hybrids’

An interesting alternative to the usual Echinacea species, this variety is shorter with smaller blooms than E. purpurea, but with a similar colouration. Each flower has upward curving, pastelpink to mauve petals and the central disk florets starting brown-black but turning orange-yellow when they open. The plant is a vigorous, compact, clump-former reaching 60cm (2ft) and requiring full or part sun, well-drained soil, only needing moisture to establish.
