Description

We like pixie meadowbrite because it provides the traditional coneflower look, while also giving you increased resistance to disease and a more compact size. We think you'll enjoy the contrast of the deep green foliage in this flower with the magenta pink flowers. It's compact with strong stems, so the flowers won't droop, but it's tall enough at 18 to 20 inches to make it usable in the front, middle or back of a garden bed depending on the companion plants.

Pixie Meadowbrite was hybridized from E. tennesseensis, E. angustifolia and E. purpurea genes and introduced by the Chicago botanical garden.

Coneflower, also known as echinacea, is a wonderful perennial native to the U.S. midwest and prairies. It does best in a light loamy soil, but will do well in any well-drained soil. Full sunlight and heat are best for full flowering, while they can tolerate some light shade, we recommend at least 6 hours of full sun each and every day. Once established they are very drought resistant making them a great plant for those looking for a low water/ low maintenance garden. As a perennial flower, if cared for correctly, echinacea will return with new growth each year. It's a star of the garden, easy to grow, native, and keeps a long-lasting bounty of color all summer and well into fall.
