Sunrise Colored Blooms that Butterflies Adore

Another of the wonderful Butterfly™ series of brightly colored, compact echinaceas for garden and container, Echinacea Butterfly™ Rainbow Marcella regales you with bicolor blooms that change colors as they mature. It isn't only the butterflies and bees that are going to love this new coneflower in the sunny garden.

The flowers open tangerine orange, then beginning blushing lavender, creating a sherbet-like swirl of soft color. These single blooms are large and showy, lasting a long time on the plant or in the vase. Cut or deadhead them promptly to encourage new buds to set all summer long.

Echinacea Butterfly™ Rainbow Marcella reaches just 16 to 18 inches high—quite compact for an echinacea—and spreads up to 24 inches wide. A selection of a native American perennial, it is very hardy and adaptable, standing up to heat, humidity, cold, drought, poor soil, and more. Deer and rabbits prefer other garden plants, and most insects and diseases leave it alone. Can't ask for more in the way of low-maintenance gardening.

Whether you grow Echinacea Butterfly™ Rainbow Marcella for the garden, the vase, or both, you will appreciate its long life, cheery presence, and great resilience. Make it an integral part of your sun-soaked landscape this season for summer-long flowering.
