First Ever Double Orange Coneflower!

Echinacea Hot Papaya (Coneflower), Echinacea 'Hot Papaya', is the first ever double orange Coneflower and has one of the largest Coneflower blooms!

This Echinacea boasts large, two toned, papaya-colored ray petals and a deep orange-yellow cone that grows larger as the flower matures; the intense color of this Coneflower will not fade no matter how hot or sunny.

These long lasting flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds and are great in cut flower arrangements! Providing large 3" blooms, 'Hot Papaya' should be planted in masses for an outstanding touch of beauty in your yard!

Divide clumps when they become overcrowded (about every 4 years).

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

Coneflowers are used as accent plants or in mixed borders, open woodlands, and mass plantings. Highly fragrant, they keep coming all summer on tall plants with excellent branching. This plant is deer resistant.

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.

'Hot Papaya' provides a season-long colorful display of outstanding, two toned, daisy-like flowers. You can't beat the intensity of the color, which will bring a brilliant show to a sunny location!

  • Huge 3" Double Red Blooms
  • Two Toned Blooms
  • Fragrant
  • Seed heads attract birds!
