  • Posted by Catmint20906 (PNW WA half hour south of Olympia - Zone 8a) on Aug 23, 2014 3:01 PM concerning plant:
    Echinacea 'Raspberry Truffle' is a very pretty double-blossomed coneflower with an early to mid summer bloom time. Unlike single-blossomed Echinacea, the double-blossomed cultivars like 'Raspberry Truffle' do not attract pollinators. The bees and butterflies seem to not be able to access the nectar easily through the thick bloom cover, and so pass it by. If you are looking for a unique and pretty blossom color, this is it. If you are looking to attract the pollinators, you'll want to choose a single-blossom cultivar instead.
