Echinacea purpurea 'White Swan'
A staple plant for any garden. Robust, easy to grow, undemanding and trouble free.
It flowers from early summer until autumn with a profusion of ivory white, daisy like flowers.
The long petals fold back to clasp the stem as the flower matures. The orange-green central cone elongates at the same time.
This white variety is shorter than its purple cousins with stiff, erect stems that don't need staking.
Perfect for pollinators, this handsome plant is excellent for cutting and drying. Deadhead to prolong flowering.
