Coneflower
Echinacea

Description:
The flowers are shaped like a Black-Eyed Susan's with sturdy orange-bronze cones and petals in shades of pink, red, purple and white. They do best in full sun but will take some shade, and are tolerant of hot, dry, windy sites.  Plant with Rudbeckia, Stokesia, Ornamental Grasses and Salvia.  Also best if used in borders, meadows, butterfly gardens, masses, small gardens and containers.  The dead flower stems will remain erect well into the winter and, if flower heads are not removed, are often visited by goldfinches who perch on or just below the blackened cones to feed on the seeds.

Cone Flower

A set of shorter petals rests on top of the cone while a "skirt" of longer, deep rose-pink petals emerge from the base of the cone.   First year plants sometimes produce single flowers. From the second year forward, a high percentage of two-tiered flowers appear with either a single or double set of petals. Occasionally, older plants produce single flowers.

Echinacea 'Hot Papaya'
Cone Flower
zones 4-9
 
Description:   A breakthrough in Echinacea breeding!  This sizzling new variety was developed by master hybridizer Arie Blom of AB Cultivars of The Netherlands who also brought us popular hybrids like ‘Pink Double Delight’ and ‘Meringue’.  From mid through late summer, highly fragrant, 3 inch, spicy red-orange flowers bloom with a papaya orange halo in the pom-pom center.  The glowing orange flowers have terrific visual impact from quite a distance, especially when planted in groups.  Be sure to cut a few for a fresh bouquet that will last nearly two weeks. Though it is a hybrid of two species, ‘Hot Papaya’ strongly exhibits the traits of E. purpurea in foliage and habit.  The plant forms a strong, sturdy clump with robust, deep green foliage and thick stems with maroon markings.  It grows about three feet tall in the landscape, making it a good choice for the middle of the flower border.
