Try this great Perennial – Echibeckia
If you are looking for something new for your garden try the new Echibeckia. It is a cross between two classic perennials Echinacea and Rudbeckia. Like its parents Echibeckia is a great summer flowering perennial that produces beautiful orange or yellow blooms. Echibeckias have the appearance and fast growth of Rudbeckia with the hardiness and disease tolerance of Echinacea. The “Summerina” flowers are huge at 3 inches in diameter and they can last 2-3 months. They start flowering mid summer and will bloom into the fall providing colour for months. Echibeckia is drought tolerant and a heat lover as well.
