This is the 1st fully double, vibrant orange colored Echinacea! Intense color does not fade. The cone consists of reddish-orange center petals with long papaya-orange lower ray petals. The 3" pom-pom bloom not only looks great, but smells wonderful also (honey scented with a hint of spice). Stems are strong to hold this big bloom and exhibit maroon markings. Leaves are dark green and thick. This is flower power! Great as a cut flower, in a mass, containers, mixed borders and butterfly gardens. Insect, disease and drought tolerant.
