This is a strikingly beautiful coneflower. Added to my summer perennial garden this year, with pink hydrangeas of a very similar color, and it is stunning. Upright and the form, texture and rich color it adds is wonderful. They are clustered with a wave of coneflowers in hot summer color, and everyone immediately is attracted to that part of the garden, It is a really beautiful flower, well worth adding to your garden. Will see how it performs next year after a cold winter.
