Perennials

Echinacea purpurea 'Mellow Yellows'

Coneflower

A seed introduction with plenty of vigor and hardiness as well as a wide array of yellow colors blooming at the same time ranging from a buttery ivory to banana, lemon yellow, melon, mango and pumpkin! The colors are intense and bright as the flowers are budding, then unfurl colorful petals that mellow as the flower ages. This gives a mature planting a beautiful spectrum of yellows in one viewing. The plants will vary in flower color, as well as height, but there will be no pink in sight. Due to the long flowering nature of echinacea, honey bees and many other pollinators use this plant for sustenance.
