Echinacea Prairie Splendor

Prairie Splendor Coneflower

Get ready to be blown away by 'Prairie Splendor', a plant that has everything you want in a summer blooming perennial. You'll love its shorter denser form that keeps it 6-12" lower and more compact than varieties like 'Ruby Star' and you'll love its earlier bloom time starting in June, a full month earlier than 'Ruby Star' yet continuing to flower just as long into September. Great form and an earlier flower date have not shortchanged 'Prairie Splendor' when it comes to fragrance, amount of bloom and its ability to produce nectar and seed that will attract a huge variety of native insects, butterflies and birds. In short, you'll want to use this plant often throughout any of you sunny, well-drained gardens.
