More than a decade later, the highest rated white Coneflower in the 2009 Mt. Cuba trials remains a front runner. Lightly fragrant 4” flowers with porcelain-white horizontal petals on straight stems make top-notch cut flowers. Green button centers transform to golden orange with a slight outer band of green.

Echinacea Fragrant Angel from the Prairie Pillars™ Collection is a pollinator favorite. Mt. Cuba documents pollinator visits and this cultivar averaged the most pollinator visits, including the most butterfly visits of any Coneflower in their trial between 2018 and 2019. Perfect for the mid to back border. Strong, upright habit and masses of single flowers. It’s hard to imagine a sunny perennial border without Coneflowers. Butterflies love the flowers, birds love the seeds, and we love the long-lasting bouquets. Like all Coneflowers, this heavenly selection makes an excellent cut flower.

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.
