Like its shining siblings 'Purple Emperor', 'Golden Skipper', 'Cleopatra' and others, Echinacea Butterfly™ Orange Skipper is yet another stunning addition to the Butterfly Series. Its jewel-like orange petals dance around a dark center that is adored by butterflies. The shining flower head of Echinacea Butterfly™ Orange Skipper stands tall on its sturdy green stems that are ideal for cut flower arrangements.

Summer gardens enjoy the brightly colored flowers in full bloom while fall gardens enjoy the treat of birds swarming the tasty seed heads of the spent flowers. This versatile plant can thrive anywhere and looks good in mass plantings, beds, borders and even containers. Plant Echinacea Butterfly™ Orange Skipper in full sunlight and keep its soil moist and well-drained and top performance is assured.
