Coneflower - Meringue

White Fluff


Coneflower Meringue, Echinacea purpurea 'Meringue' PPAF, produces creamy yellow pom-poms with apple green centers, set atop white ray petals, creating this delicious "meringue" coneflower.


As the flower ages, Echinacea 'Meringue' PPAF, opens as flat as a daisy, and as it matures the center cone grows upward and develops short, puffy petals that give it that gumdrop look.


A delight for songbirds, this distinctive knee high variety was introduced by AB Cultivars and blooms from mid to late summer. 'Meringue' has a huge number of blooms which is marvelous, but it's the compact, easily controlled habit that is so impressive!


The  sturdy stems carry the blossoms from midsummer to fall.  For best results, plant in full sun in a well drained area.


Echinacea is known for its large flower heads that turn to seed in the fall. It is a great choice for cut flowers, and it adds a wilderness look to your garden.


‘Meringue' usually reblooms without deadheading, but if spent flowers are removed, this procedure will encourage continued beautiful blooms and improves general appearance.


If you leave some spent blooms on the plants in fall their seeds provide winter food for birds.  You can enjoy the dried seed heads as well, because they will provide architectural interest in the winter.


Meringue' will give you weeks of delicious color and makes a dependable and lovely plant for any sunny garden spot!
