Description
This is the white version of our famous plains native called Purple Coneflower, but better known today by its botanical name: Echinacea.

For years before it was a favorite of the herbal medicine industry, it was always one of the loveliest wildflowers on the plains.

This large pink-to-purple daisy is a mainstay of all well-grown wildflower meadows, and is also a major colormaker in perennial borders.

You can easily grow the standard version of this great native plant from our seed (See our Wildflower Seed Department) but to save a year or more, and enjoy the hybrid forms, its really easy to plug in these plants.

        Comments about American Meadows Echinacea White Swan:

        I love this bright white, long blooming plant. It brings the contrast and fresh look of daisies without the constant dead-heading. Our summer temperatures often hit 100 degrees and they perform without a hitch. We also dip into the 20 degrees in winter and they survive just fine. These are garden winners!
