What a beauty! This one is my top 2 Echinaceas. Planted in May, blooms are deep in color & last very long, do well as cut flowers also. Oct. 1st in NY and it's still blooming like crazy! Your plants are the best Joe!

Beautiful Coneflowers

I think I have ordered every Coneflower that you have and all have arrived in good condition. It is hard to have to have a favorite but the Big Sky Solar Flare are at the top of my list. All are beautiful. I am amazed at the size of the new plants.

I was really pleased with the price and the size of the plant. It was packed very well and the delivery was quick and I had it shipped standard UPS  ground service. The condition of the plant was awesome. I already am working on my list of flowers to order for next year. 2 thumbs up for this company.

Echinacea Solar Flare

Solar Flare is one of my favorite Echinaceas. It has beautiful deep red blooms that stand straight out and are complimented by long dark red stems that hold it above the foliage. While the deep red of the blooms only lasts a few days the dark stems contrast nicely while the red blooms fade to pink. My plant has not stopped blooming since it started and I've only cut a few flowers off to bring in. I love the spicy scent too. All in all it will always be a favorite of mine.
