Echinacea ‘Rainbow Marcela’ is a standout in a field of champions! ‘Rainbow Marcela’s’ has beautiful coral-pink petals that turn a soft, raspberry pink around the center cone.

Plant Information

18" tall x 15-18" wide. With some of the most striking blooms in the Echinacea world, ‘Rainbow Marcela’ hits a homerun with apricot petals kissed with pink. At 18" tall, these sturdy, sun-loving natives are covered with long-lasting flowers and are lovely planted en masse or in a flower border. Flowers last from mid-June until the first frost, gradually fading to a soft pink. Leave the seed heads intact through winter to add winter interest and to feed the birds. Plant them in average soils, with lots of sunlight. They are drought tolerant once established. Pollinators love them – deer stay away. Great cut flowers too!

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
