New Colorful Echinacea

Earlier this year we reported about new fragrant echinacea varieties -- 'Sunrise' and 'Sunset' -- that have recently been introduced to the public. The parade of new coneflower introductions continues with Echinacea 'Harvest Moon' and Echinacea 'Twilight'. Not only are these two echinacea also fragrant, they produce uniquely colored flowers.

'Harvest Moon' and 'Twilight' are part of the Big Sky echinacea series. These hybrids from Georgia are a cross between Echinacea paradoxa and E. purpurea. They produce large, full flowers, toothed leaves, and wide flower petals. 'Harvest Moon' has an earthy, golden color with a golden-orange cone. 'Twilight' features vibrant rose-red blossoms with a deep red cone. Both grow 24 to 30 inches tall and are hardy in USDA zones 4 to 9.

For more information on these new coneflowers, go to the Perennial Resource.
