Echinacea purpurea 'Elton Knight'

Tired of the one flower per stalk look of older coneflowers? Elton Knight brings the compact look to coneflowers. With multiple flowers on short compact stems, the 4-6 inch flowers present an all summer long show. Another nice attribute is the way the flowers hold their color compared to past varieties. 'Elton Knight' was one of only three coneflowers to receive the prestigious Award of Garden Merit in the Royal Horticultural Echinacea trials (2003) From UK breeder Anthony Brooks
