Description / Echinacea 'Eccentric'

'Eccentric,' a standout red echinacea plant, captivates with its extraordinary display, transitioning from reflexing purple petals in its budding stage to a vibrant red-orange puffball at full bloom. This red coneflower is not only a visual spectacle but also an embodiment of resilience and beauty, perfectly suited for any garden seeking a touch of the eccentric.

Bred in the UK and thriving in the US, 'Eccentric' surpasses traditional expectations with its exceptional hardiness. This red echinacea plant is a testament to robustness, effortlessly withstanding heat, drought, and disease. Its care is straightforward: full sun and regular watering until established are all it takes for 'Eccentric' to flourish, showcasing its deep red flowers that transform into a striking orange-red as they mature.

The blooms of 'Eccentric' are unparalleled, making it the most brilliant double red coneflower available. Its red echinacea blooms, from mid to late summer, present a perpetual display of vibrant red flowers that shift to an orange-red hue. This dynamic color change, alongside the spikey yet flowery centers, attracts bees and butterflies, enhancing the garden's ecosystem.

Growing to about 24 inches in both height and width, 'Eccentric' is ideally placed in the sunny parts of the garden or in containers. Its fiery red flowers contribute to a hot-themed or prairie-style garden design, complementing other heat- and drought tolerant plants.

Adaptable and resilient, 'Eccentric' enjoys average moisture but grows exceptionally well once established, showing remarkable tolerance to environmental stresses. Its dramatic red flowers make it a standout addition to any garden, encouraging growth among other echinacea varieties and enhancing biodiversity with its pollinator-friendly blooms.

Echinacea, commonly called coneflower, is a hardy native perennial flower that is low maintenance, drought tolerant, and pollinator friendly. Available in a variety of colors, the purple coneflower is the most widely planted.
