Description

Details

(Coneflower) Another great introduction from ItSaul Plants, the Big Sky™ series has just got bigger. The newest introduction, Solar Flare is something big to talk about. The large 5-6" blooms are as close to red as you will see in the Echinacea family as of now. The colors of Solar Flare show a deep magenta red with red being the dominant color, and purple underside. As the flowers age a rose color appears. The large, highly fragrant blooms are held up by dark, almost black sturdy stems. Solar Flare is a native variety in the US, attracting butterflies and songbirds.

Unique Review by J. F | Zone: 5b

The Best most Unique Plant I have bought in the last year. The blooms (on top of BLACK STURDY STEMS) last like they are new, months after they first open. Longest bloom time. Everyone asks what its name is when they see it. (Posted on 6/28/2013)
