Echinacea 'Watermelon Sugar' PPAF


Common Name: Coneflower

DOUBLE DIPPED® Echinacea have large, fully double 4½" flowers with wide, overlapping ray petals. Each variety has substantial landscape size at 2-2½' tall, perfect for the middle of the border. Strong, well-branched stems support the large, numerous heavy flowers with ease. Mounded habit of dark green foliage. Best performance comes in full sun and well-drained soils.

Double pompom flowers open magenta pink before maturing to a medium pink. Flowers are produced over a large rosette of foliage with almost no exposed stem.

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.
