Echinacea 'Kim's Knee High"

Want all the beauty and color of a purple coneflower but don't quite have the space? How about a miniature version called Kim's Knee High? More compact that Magnus but with all the free flowers and with 3" blooms this is sure slowly becoming one of the top 5 sold coneflower on the market. Very drought tolerant with blooms all summer. A selection from Kim Hawks, a native plant specialist.
