Echinacea Virgin (Coneflower), Echinacea purpurea 'Virgin', provides lovely pure white petals in double rows with a green center cone and a mild sweet fragrance.
The tall and sturdy stems do not need staking, are very attractive, and add a pleasurable look to this plant. If you are looking for a white flower to brighten up a sunny spot in the garden, this plant is it!
Being a long lasting flower that attracts butterflies and hummingbirds, it is also great in cut flower arrangements! The bright, white flowers are supported on strong stems; best if grouped or massed.
This Echinacea will present a season full of white daisy-like flowers and is praised for its long blooming period after other perennials have faded.
Divide clumps when they become overcrowded (about every 4 years). The Virgin Echinacea usually re-blooms without deadheading, but if spent flowers are removed, this procedure will encourage continued beautiful blooms and improve general appearance.
These Virgin coneflowers can be used as accent plants or in mixed borders, open woodlands, and mass plantings.
If you leave the coneflower seed heads on the plant at the end of the season, they will provide winter interest and food for native songbirds.
