'Intense Orange' Echinacea is the most floriferous member to date of the KISMET® Series and colors the garden with long-lasting, pumpkin orange blooms that hold their color for weeks. The compact habit and upright form typical of the series makes 'Intense Orange' Echinacea an excellent addition to the front of the border. And of course, no butterfly garden would be complete without a mix of coneflowers! The showy blooms attract a diversity of pollinators and other beneficial insects, while ripening cones invite goldfinches to feast on the maturing seeds. Allow seed heads to stand in autumn, and watch these golden jewels flock to your garden. Seed heads glimmer in winter with a dusting of snow.

KISMET® 'Intense Orange' was featured as a top performer in a Mt Cuba Center Trial Garden Research Report. These reports evaluate native plants and related cultivars for horticultural and ecological value, highlighting the ecosystem services they provide.
