Echinacea 'One in a Melon' PPAF CPBRAF

COLOR CODED® Collection

Common Name: Coneflower

Melon-colored flowers and matching melon cones. At 5-5½" wide these are among the largest flowers in the collection. Petals are held horizontally and overlap for maximum display. The cantaloupe flower color is lighter than 'Orange You Awesome' and not a true yellow like 'Yellow My Darling'.

COLOR CODED® Echinacea are produced vegetatively from tissue culture, so all plants will be identical in color and habit. These varieties were selected for their excellent basal branching, flower performance, large flower size, and horizontally held petals. Enjoy these as late summer interest for your garden. These are perfect pollinator magnets and during late fall to winter the seed heads will serve as food for birds.

Praised for their cheerful brightly colored flowers, coneflowers are a mainstay in today's garden. Be sure to leave some spent blooms on the plants in the fall because their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter.
