Plant Features

Our Quills & Thrills Echinacea Plant is a Coneflower for the collector in you! This heat resistant Echinacea cultivar bears large blossoms with a single row of quills around the bronze cone. Known to attract bees and butterflies, each quill is a vivid, mauve-pink and only opens up at the very end, each petal resembling a tiny salt-cellar spoon! Another thrill? You never know if the quills will be swept back, swept up or swept straight out! What fun!
