Lemon Drop Coneflower
A fluffy confection for your summer garden!
Lemon Drop Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea‘Lemon Drop’ ppaf) is a frothy-topped flower that brings the color of sunshine to your perennial border or cutting garden. This pure bright yellow Echinacea is fully double and packed with so many petals we won’t blame you if you think it’s fully triple!
The flowers are puffy balls on top with elegant drooping petals around the base. These are showstoppers in the garden and especially on the vase. They combine well with any other flower color in the garden – try them with cool purples, whites and blues for a classic Cape Cod look or with rich reds, pinks and oranges for a hot tropical garden. If you keep them deadheaded they will bloom all summer and often well into fall, right alongside your mums and pansies.
Like all Echinacea’s, Lemon Drop is a tough and healthy plant that tolerates heat and drought and thrives in well-drained average garden soil – no pampering needed.
These are stand-outs for your native or prairie inspired gardens, too. Don’t wait to order these. You might miss out!
