Description

Set a scorching summer scene with new Echinacea ‘Pretty Parasols’! This variety brings on the beach vibes with multiple big umbrella-like blooms, formed of gleaming white downward petals which gradient into pink towards the centre, then topped off with the distinctive Echinacea cone. Noteworthy for its large blooms, particularly strong, straight stems and ability to produce multiple flowers per stem, it’s a real corker of an Echinacea which earns its spot in any hot summer border.

Once this reliable hardy perennial has settled into an established clump it’ll produces masses of flowers. Every year it’ll come back with more guts than the last, forming a bigger clump which produces more stems, many with multiple flowers which open in succession from mid to late summer. The strong stems make easy-going Echinacea ‘Pretty Parasols’ happily upright and less likely to need propping up after a spell of rain. Lots of flower power and minimal effort, what could be better than that?!
