This petite coneflower has great texture and a soft color that won't overwhelm the senses. The trend in flowers has long been to seek the most intense and eye-popping colors, but good designers know that it's a blend of many different intensities that allow tie a look together and pull the eye toward key elements of the garden. 'Butterfly Kisses', just like the name is a soft pink coneflower or short stature. It is useful in spaces where taller plants won't do and can be used with pinks, purples, whites and green to blend the spaces of the garden together while also offering plenty of texture and reliably easy to care for blooms. AB Cultivars in the Netherlands makes some of the most fabulous echinacea, and 'Butterfly Kisses', part of the diverse Cone-Fections™ series, is no exception. The reliable genetics are disease resistant and reliable bloomers. This plant will do lots of work for you with minimal input.

You can't go wrong with echinacea. We carry a multitude of cultivars and colors for just that reason. They are easy to grow and reward the lazy gardener with months of full beautiful blooms that just keep coming. Pollinators are big fans of the native and nativar varieties flocking to the flowers through the summer and well into the fall. Echinacea comes in many varieties both short and tall. They can be used in a wide variety of garden applications including border gardens, container plantings and naturalization into a larger area. They make great cut flowers. The seeds feed finches and other birds through the cold months, while also maintaining a structural interest through the winter months. I could go on... let's just leave it at we love them and you should too!

Echinacea purpurea Cone-Fections Butterfly Kisses - Coneflower

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.
