Wow! What a color – fittingly named, absolutely the color of ripe cantaloupe. Cones mature from dark gerbera-like discs to towering pom-poms of soft melon hues. Our greenhouse visitors are drawn to this delectable variety.

Strong, well-branched stems. Expect lots of 'butterfly kisses' as they flit and flutter throughout this lovely plant to sip nectar from the vibrant blooms. Echinacea provide a spectacular show in any sunny summer border. E. Cantaloupe will quickly become one of your favorite coneflowers.

Echinacea General Information

It is hard to imagine a sunny perennial border without Echinacea! So much color in summertime and very easy to grow, our offerings include classics and some of the newest and most exciting advances in Coneflowers. Butterflies love the flowers, birds love the seeds, and we love the generous long-lasting bouquets.

Echinacea Plant Care

Easy to grow, prolific bloomer. Deadheading will prevent seeding, but birds are crazy about the seeds, and the seedheads are attractive in the winter, especially in the snow. If removing them, leave the foliage at the base of the plant to overwinter. May be slow to emerge in the spring. These generally don't need to be divided, but can be divided in early spring or early fall.
