Echinacea purpurea 'Glowing Dream'- PURPLE CONEFLOWER 'GLOWING DREAM'

No reviews yet
Product Code: ECH-GLO-DRE
Shipping: Calculated at Checkout
$10.99

Top performing coneflower in Mt. Cuba trials in 2018-2020!

Great habit with many flowers, intense coral-water melon color (fade to orange), long-flowering season, vigorous.

Very attractive to pollinators, starts to bloom earlier.

"Echinacea ‘Glowing Dream’ is a Terra Nova Nurseries hybrid that has incredible tropical pink blooms. A profusion of luminous flowers is held well above the foliage for six weeks in mid-June to mid-July, establishing ‘Glowing Dream’ as one of the longest blooming non-double Echinacea in our trial. This cultivar is most similar in form and color to ‘Sensation Pink’, although ‘Glowing Dream’ lacks the contrasting dark stems of the former cultivar. Like ‘Sensation Pink,’ ‘Glowing Dream’ was also one of the most visited coneflowers in our pollinator study."
