Echinacea x. "Art's Pride" aka Orange Meadowbright

The original orange coneflower from the breeding program at the Chicago Botanic Garden. A hybrid between Echinacea purpurea ‘Alba’ and Echinacea paradoxa. A light fragrance and perhaps not quite as vigorous as the originals, it is went from extreme popularity to falling out out to coming back into favor. Blooms June to September. A definite add to your coneflower collection.
