The changing of the guard in the coneflower world. Echinacea Sunrise is a the first of its kind the yellow coneflower world. With its huge 5 inch blooms, Sunrise give off a fragrance that makes you wonder if this really is a coneflower. You soon realize it truly is a coneflower when you see tolerant it is too poor soil conditions and drought.
Want to cut some of the flowers? Bring some sharp scissors because the stems are thick and strong and will give you your favorite bouquet of the season. The flowers transcend from a buttery yellow to a lemon yellow as the flower matures. A coneflower collection is complete without this gem.
