Echinacea 'Hot Summer'

What a fine plant from breeder Marco van Noort. Perhaps our favorite new introduction for 2010. This is a breathtaking plant. The flowers emerge yellow and then darken to red as they mature, leaving a beautiful kaleidoscope of color on one plant.
Below is a video from Marco showing off some of his new introductions
