Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
ECHINACEA 'Katie Saul'( SUMMER SKY™, BIG SKY™ SERIES) PP18783
Hybrid Coneflower, Summer Sky™ Coneflower
Summer Sky™ coneflower ('Katie Saul') has an upright habit and heavy branching. Its fragrant flowerheads have dark rosy-pink petals with peach tips and a large, orange or green central cone. This hybrid was created from a cross between the eastern purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) and the Ozark coneflower (Echinacea paradoxa).
Plants grow best full to partial sun and rich to average soil with good drainage. They are not overly water thirsty, but do check to make sure the soil is never too dry. Deadheading spent flowers keeps plants looking clean and attractive and will encourage continued flowering. Coneflowers will self-sow but are not too aggressive. In fact, most welcome and share new coneflower plantlets with friends.
Big Sky™ coneflowers all attract bees and butterflies and provide seeds for hungry birds in the fall and winter months. Use these perennials in flower borders, en masse in landscape beds, in meadows or sunny containers.
