Echinacea 'Cotton Candy'

Echinacea 'Cotton Candy' is an improved 'Razzmatazz' although many incorrectly feel its the same flower. Cotton Candy is a bit larger and starts with a yellow cone. As it matures it eventually becomes double but the yellow center can be seen until the final finish. Strong stems make it a good cut flower. The big flowers do cause a bit of a flopping problem and may need to be staked in windier conditions.
