Coneflower with Elegant White Blooms
Milkshake is a variety of Echinacea with uncommon, creamy white blooms. These would make excellent border plants or look terrific simply scattered amid your other perennial bed plantings.
Milkshake is a plant that is true to its name. This unique variety of Echinacea boasts flowers that possess the creamy hues of a delicious French-vanilla milkshake. They look good enough to eat!
Each individual blossom has a double, pompom bloom with an appealing bronze center. The flowers are framed by delicate ray petals, an elegant touch in an already classic perennial. The effect is exquisite, especially when the plant is covered with up to 50 of these captivating blooms for the entire summer…and right up until the first frost.
Your Milkshake is a medium size Coneflower, so not quite as tall as the common variety and small enough to fit into some of your tight spaces. Milkshake has strong, sturdy stems that hold the flower heads erect with little effort so you won’t have to worry about staking.
It also makes an outstanding cut flower as the blooms are not only hardy, but maintain their color without fading. Left to age, your Milkshake will provide winter interest with its dark cones, and the birds will appreciate the special treat its seed heads provide.
A unique Coneflower variety with lovely white blossoms and a hardy nature, the Milkshake is certainly an exceptional plant for your landscape.
