Echinacea 'Summer Sky'

Summer Sky Coneflower (Katie Saul Coneflower): Patent U. S. Plant Patent PP18783

Categories: Herbaceous Perennial

SUMMER SKY™ produces huge flowers up to 5 inches across that are light orange with a rose colored halo and an orange cone. They are presented on tall, very stout stems that hold up terrifically when cut for fresh bouquets. SUMMER SKY™ is a prolific bloomer and tends to keep its coloring longer than some other members of this series. The flowers are delightfully fragrant; in fact they are touted as the most fragrant coneflower in the series.
