Echinacea 'Firebird'
Common Name: Coneflower Family: Asteraceae (The Aster Family)

Echinacea  'Firebird'
Zoom In Photo:

Notes:
Sometimes it comes all together in an Echinacea - wonderful habit, compact size, and charming, red-orange shuttlecock-type flowers that look like they want to fly away! The dark cones only add to the appeal. Attracts butterflies in summer and seed hunting birds in the fall. Mix with Rudbeckia for a great combo. Echinacea in coastal BC should be planted in hot, dry, sunny spots with thin, average to poor soils for best overwintering.
