coneflower Interesting Notes

All-America Selections Winner, 2010

PowWow puts more flowers on every plant than any other seed echinacea, whether grown for first-year Spring sales or as a traditional overwintered perennial. Very well-matched for habit and timing, the colour-packed duo is also faster to flower and genetically shorter than the competition, making it easy to grow and ship on racks. No PGRs are needed to maintain controlled height in quart or gallon programs. Very drought-tolerant, easy-care plants stay tidy at retail with long holdability, and look great in the garden. Echinacea is a “top five” perennial – gardeners and landscapers will especially flock to award-winning Wild Berry for its terrific, non-fading colour show! - Darwin Perennials

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