Description

This floriferous, compact coneflower is a sport of the very popular ‘Kim’s Knee High’. No growth regulators are required. It is covered in pink blooms from July to September (up to 80 the second year). Its petals are less prone to flop over the flowering period and it branches extremely well. A show stopper for the front of the border and rock gardens. Also an excellent container plant for sunny locations. Comes to Must Have Perennials from Dutch grower Ad Kempen.
