Echinacea purpurea 'White Swan'
Ideal Sun Conditions:
A beautiful white variety of the purple coneflower. This picture doesn't do the flower justice.
Similar to the purple coneflower, this white variety is really a high water-use plant that appreciates afternoon shade. Deadhead to prolong the bloom period, but keep end of season blooms on for fall and winter interest.
Use in Garden
Native prairie garden. The middle to back of the mixed border in a medium to high water use bed.
Deadhead to prolong blooming, but leave the last blooms on for winter interest. Topdress with 1 inch compost spring and fall.
