Home Echinacea ‘Leilani‘
Common Name: Coneflower, Leilani
Leilani echinacea is an elegant plant well suited to it’s name, which means “royal child of heaven.” This echinacea glows with its clear, yellow flowers that bloom from summer to fall. It has a strongly upright habit that doesn't require any staking. Use en masse for the border, in a mixed bed, and as a cut flower.
Praised for their cheerful brightly colored flowers, coneflowers are a mainstay in today's garden. Be sure to leave some spent blooms on the plants in the fall because their seeds provide winter food for finches and other birds. The dried seed heads also provide architectural interest in the winter.
The plants we ship; In early spring when echinacea ships they often appear small but will grow quickly as they are just waking up from being dormant. They will flower in the first season if planted in early summer.
