Echinacea 'Summer Sun'

Echinacea 'Summer Sun' is exactly that, a coneflower that shines like the summer sun. The flower opens up in a glowing reddish orange and with time fades to a golden orange. Another great reason to buy this one is the fragrance, it's unbelievable for a coneflower. So far only found this one available from growers who buy from Walter's Gardens.
