Echinacea purpurea 'PowWow Wild Berry'


Echinacea 'PowWow Wild Berry’ is a coneflower that features large, deep magenta flowers in an upright clump on sturdy, well-branched stems that do not need staking. Each flower features downward-arching, overlapping, deep magenta-pink rays which encircle a large orange-brown center cone. Good fresh cut or dried flower. The dead flower stems will remain erect well into the winter, and if flower heads are not removed, the blackened cones may be visited by goldfinches or other birds that feed on the seeds.
