All-America Selections Winner, 2013

Brilliant colour range is available for the first time from seed. Excellent branching puts more flowers on every plant. First-year flowering in both gallons and quarts. Cheyenne Spirit features sought-after shades of red, orange, purple, scarlet, cream, yellow and white – all now available from economical seed! Excellent genetics bring you extremely well-branched plants for more flowers on every plant – high-impact landscapes and fuller looking containers. This great branching also saves on chemical costs usually required to obtain a quality plant. Suitable for gallons and quarts, Cheyenne Spirit brings opportunities to offer product at various price points for differing market and retailer needs. It is also possible to plant one per quart to separate colours, if desired. This first year-flowering perennial is also suitable for traditional perennial production, making it easy for programmable production based upon grower conditions and methods. A Fleuroselect Gold Medal Winner. A 2013 European and Rest of World Introduction. A 2014 North America introduction. - Darwin Perennials

The prominent, bristly seed heads of Echinacea inspired the generic name of the plant, taken from the Greek word echinos, meaning hedgehog.
