This new dwarf coneflower with crisp white blooms and a habit as reliable as a pot-mum. This new selection was bred by Arie Blom of The Netherlands.
Arie's quest for dwarf, more floriferous coneflowers with predictable habits resulted in this amazing new introduction.Prefect for smaller spaces or mid-border placement, Avalanche will amaze growers with its pot-full-of-blooms and it's amazing, sturdy habit.
This Echinacea is a dream for shipping and retail sales. Perfect for container gardening and small urban spaces, we predict Avalanche will dominate the market and eventually replace all other single-flowered white coneflowers. This plant has continuously bloomed from July to September in many garden settings.
