Secret Romance Coneflower
Compact Coneflower Creates An Entire Bouquet
Echinacea Secret Romance (Coneflower), Echinacea 'Secret Romance', provides large, delightful, salmon pink double flowers. It is a sturdy, well-branched compact plant. One plant can bloom enough to create bouquets of flowers!
The flower begins with a bright pink color, and then fades with age to a pleasant salmon color. It is a long lasting flower that attracts butterflies and hummingbirds and is great in cut flower arrangements!
The fragrant, bright, intense flowers of 'Secret Romance' are supported on strong stems; best if grouped or massed for the most visual impact. This Echinacea will present a season full of daisy-like flowers and is praised for its prolonged blooming after other perennials have faded.
'Secret Romance' usually reblooms without deadheading, but if spent flowers are removed, this procedure will encourage continued beautiful blooms and improves general appearance. However, leaving the seed heads will attract song birds to your yard. Divide clumps when they become overcrowded (about every 4 years).
Highly fragrant, this Coneflower keeps coming all summer on tall plants with excellent branching. 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. Plus, this plant is deer resistant.
Don't keep this plant a secret any longer! 'Secret Romance' is an outstanding flower that becomes a mainstay in any garden. It will provide a profusion of lovely salmon-pink blooms to a sunny location!
- Large Double Pink Blooms
- Prolifically Blooms All Summer
- Branched & Compact
