Raspberry Truffle Coneflower
Sumptuous Color in a Delightful Perennial
Raspberry Truffle Coneflower is a prolific perennial with outstanding blooms. Plant several along a border, or scatter throughout your flower beds for a showy splash of color through late summer.
Have you ever eaten a raspberry truffle? Remember that feeling of your teeth breaking through the outer shell and the creamy blend of fruit-flavor and satiny chocolate on your tongue? It’s a moment of pure sensual bliss for many people…and your first sight of your Raspberry Truffle Coneflower in bloom will be the same.
The center of the coneflower starts out with a deep brown appearance, like a truffle nestled amid the raspberry floral confection, thus inspiring its name. Few things can compare with watching the blooms begin as pink daisies only to slowly transform into 5-inch double, button-top flowers in glorious shades of pink, red and brown.
The one-of-a-kind pink/red blend of the outer ray petals perfectly frames the deeper hues of the fluffy center. It’s certainly a delectable display of nature’s majesty.
Your Raspberry Truffle Coneflower is compact, with chocolate-colored stems that are sturdy enough to firmly elevate your floral treat above the garden plantings. It’s a hardy little plant overall, being tolerant of heat, humidity and drought.
Raspberry Truffle Coneflower is also pest resistant, including deer who seem to take no interest in it at all, it can handle the cold, and is easy to care for.
For a glorious floral confection that will delight your garden and your senses, the Raspberry Truffle Coneflower is an outstanding choice.
