Description

18-24" tall x 18-24" wide. Meteor™Yellow Echinacea (Coneflower) is a double Echinacea with the cheeriest of blooms, providing a big impact in the landscape. Meteor™Yellow Echinacea boasts a strong, well-branched form which translates into more blooms. Plant them in the cutting garden or along walkways, where the fragrance can be enjoyed. Flower stalks are sturdy and stand up to wind and rain without staking. Plants bloom over a long season from mid-summer through autumn and attract bees and butterflies to the garden. Improved crown development and a clumping growth habit produces dense and hardy plants. A hybrid selection of North American native coneflowers, Meteor™Yellow tolerates a variety of growing conditions, but thrives in full sun and well-drained soils. Coneflowers tolerate heat and humidity and are drought-tolerant once established.
