PowWow White Echinacea Coneflower Plant
Sister to the Famous AAS Winner!
We just can't describe how many terrific new things are happening at once in this Echinacea! It's truly a breakthrough for the Echinacea purpurea family. The flowers make terrific everlastings as well as fresh-cut bouquets, arising incredibly profusely from early summer until the first frosts of fall. Like all Echinacea, PowWow White attracts butterflies and bees to the fresh blooms in summer and birds to the seed-filled cones in autumn and winter. It's simply a magnificent addition to any garden!
This plant reaches just 20 to 24 inches high when not in bloom, and spreads 12 to 16 inches wide. Despite this small size, it bears more blooms than just about any other Echinacea we've ever grown. The flowers add another 9 to 12 inches to the plant's height, giving you thick, longlasting stems for the vase. And you don't have to keep up with pinching off the fading blooms!
Adaptable to just about any climate in the United States and indifferent to extremes of heat, humidity, cold, and even drought, PowWow White thrives in any well-drained soil. It will bloom best in full sun and good garden soil that dries out just a bit between waterings, but it can take almost any conditions your garden and Mother Nature throws its way!
We recommend this new Echinacea very, very highly. You will be delighted by how quickly it grows, how beautifully it branches, and how profuse (and early!) it flowers. Plant it this season and tell us how it performed in your garden! Zones 3-9.
