Aptly named, this selection sports earthy gold flowers the color of a harvest moon with a golden orange cone. The nice wide flower petals are slightly reflexed and overlap, giving the blossoms a full, substantial presence. Plant it up close where you can enjoy its delightful rose-like fragrance.
This new BIG SKY™ series of echinaceas comes from Itsaul Nurseries in Atlanta, GA. The Saul brothers, who own the company, are going CONE CRAZY™!!! They are introducing new selections which are the result of crosses between E. purpurea and E. paradoxa. The plants have inherited the dominant characteristics of E. purpurea, having fuller, toothed leaves and wider flower petals. They are well-branched and are vigorous growers.
