This Conefections™ introduction will have you salivating when you see it bloom. Each of its massive numbers of double blooms looks a scoop of ice cream on a stem giving your garden a sumptious presence that is perfect for summer consumption. Flowers appear in early July featuring a beefy center cone of small golden orange petals that quickly change to creamy white as flowers mature surrounded by creamy white, slightly recurved rays. Flowers are numerous right through late September giving you long viewing time outside in the garden or inside the house since 'Milkshake' makes a great cut flower, too. 'Milkshake' is also a great garden performer that wants little except a sunny spot and moist, well-drained soil.
