Just as its name implies – huge 4 ½” flowers. Fragrant honey-mango flowers reveal an orchid purple aura surrounding the glowing cones. Gently flared layers of golden petals dance with a breeze like swaying hula skirts.

Echinacea Big Kahuna, from the Prairie Pillars™ collection, is perfect for the mid to back border. Strong, upright habit and masses of single flowers. Strong stems make this series one of the best for cut flowers. It’s hard to imagine a sunny perennial border without Echinacea! Butterflies love the flowers, birds love the seeds and we love the long-lasting bouquets. Partners well with Rudbeckia.

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.
