Echinacea 'Secret Desire'

Part of the new for 2011, Secret series from Terra Nova, this double flower really stands out in the myriad of coneflowers out this year. A little pink, a little orange, and tons of show. For growers this plant fills out a pot quickly and the growth continues when you get it in the ground. As we have learned, the key to keeping coneflower alive over the winter is a large, healthy crown. This one will get that and quickly.
