Echinacea White Swan (Coneflower)


Beautiful White Swan echinacea brings delightful eye appeal to gardens, as well as nose appeal with its honey scent. This splendid perennial attracts butterflies, hummingbirds and bees with its summer blooms, and then other birds as the flowers turn to seed. Great for wildflower gardens, cut floral arrangements, borders, beds, and meadows. 

This echinacea thrives in full sun and is both heat and drought tolerant once established. It is also deer resistant. White Swan should definitely be planted in well-draining soil to help establish its root system. It grows to about 3' tall x 2' wide and is hardy to -30°F when protected from windchill. 

Note that coneflowers have a leggy growth habit, and we may need to trim the primary stocks for shipping. Their bloom times are often throughout summer and well into fall, so there is a big bloom window and pruning can actually help stimulate more new blooms. If you order late in the season, you can get them into the ground for rooting and a new burst of growth in spring.
