The Q&A Archives: Albino Coneflowers

Question: We have had coneflowers for several years in our garden. This year, we have two albino coneflower plants. They are very pretty. I would like to know if albino coneflowers are at all common or if we have something pretty special.

Answer: It sounds like you have a mutation in your seed strain -- what fun! It will be interesting to see if they in turn come true from seed. There are actually a number of coneflower varieties in commerce, "White Swan" and "White Lustre" being two in the white range that I can think of off the top of my head.
