Echinacea 'Cardinal Crest' PPAF (30)ct Flat
Common Name: Coneflower
The first true red Echinacea of the EYE-CATCHER™ Collection! Brilliant red flowers are 3½" wide with a dark cone center and are held over well-branched dark green leaves starting in midsummer. 'Cardinal Crest' has the most compact habit of the series.
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.
