Cone-Fections ™ Milkshake Coneflower Echinacea purpurea 'Milkshake' Zone 5-9
We don’t recommend "drinking" this milkshake but you will be enjoying its beauty in the summer months. "Double vanilla" white blooms with a brownish-orange center explode against the green foliage. Blooms come in bunches so be ready!
Plant in full sun for best growth. Water regularly until established, then water occasionally. Drought-resistant and hardy. A fast grower that can quickly reach 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide. Blooms late June through late fall.
Flowers could be cut and put in a vase. Attracts birds. Cut back to a few inches above the ground before new growth emerges in early spring. Divide clumps every three years for best growth.
