- Echinacea pallida ‘Hula Dancer’. A tall variety of cone-flower forming clumps of hairy, narrow , lance-shaped foliage. From June to October it sends up flowering stalks to 80cm (2’6″) topped with large daisies comprising a typical spiky central cone and a skirt of narrow drooping palest pink petals. For well drained soils in sun
- Echinacea purpurea ‘Happy Star’ . Deep green leafy clumps set off handsome large white daisies, the centre of each one a spiky green cone brightened with orange tips 80cm. Best in sun in a rich soil. A good cut flower. An improvement on ‘White Swan’ introduced by Jelitto
- Echinacea purpurea ‘Green Jewel’. Heres one for the flower arrangers and those who appreciate something a little more subtle. A short variety, 60cm, with flowers that are a symphony in green. Each bloom is dished with a flat spiky centre and an upturned skirt of pale green petals with distinctive ends that look like they have been cut with pinking shears.
Echinacea ‘Marmalade’ is a fiery eruption. Golden amber ray florets hang down beneath a fully double, shaggy pom pom in rich marmalade tones, shading from amber to burnt orange. 60cm, June to September
Echinacea ‘Hot Papaya’ was the first hybrid to bring fiery tones into the fully double form. Semi-double flowers with a hint of spiky centre surrounded by a frilly ring fading from orange through fiery red to the hanging red ray florets. 60cm. June to September
- Echinacea ‘Tiki Torch’. The petals of this variety are held down like a glowing mandarin skirt around the embers of the dark spiky cone, with rings of stamens sparkling like glowing cinders. Distinctive branching flower stems and glossier leaves than most. Short at 65cm. One of the newer hybrids with a good reputation for hardiness.
- Echinacea purpurea ‘Cheyenne Spirit’. A seed grown mix of coneflowers encompasing all the benefits of new breeding. A joyful mix of colours from yellow through oranges to pinks and reds. Deep green foliage and large coned daisies on 60cm stems. Best in a sunny spot. Produces good robust plants that have good winter hardiness.
Strong tall stems carry enormous blooms fit for a show girl. Echinacea ‘Guava Ice’ produces a rich shaggy pom pom in deep rosy pink sitting atop a hanging skirt of pink ray petals. Flowers fade from a deep orangey-pink to a cooling guava.
Echinacea purpurea ‘Southern Belle’ has flowers of vivid pink with a fully double, tight bun centre, surrounded by a horizontal rim of ray florets. The bun centre is accentuated by a darker eye.
