Echinacea White Swan
American wildflower with large coloured flowers.
Echinacea bloom in summer and fall , forming a
showy, upright clump which is a favorite feeding
station for many butterflies and birds. New
hybrids are vigorous and have bright and different
colours. Seed heads are useful in dried
arrangements. Deer Resistant.
Care: Deadheading (cutting off spent flowers to prevent seed forming) will make plants tidier and strengthen weaker new hybrids. Once plants are established seed heads give winter interest and feed birds. Echinacea thrive in dry locations once they are established. Plant in full sun for best effect, can tolerate some morning shade. Large groups give better effect.
